Less snarkily, "Merverdiavgift" sounds like a sales tax and not an income tax.
"Tax" is not among the translations the dictionary gives. Its probably confusing that it got saddled with the inaccurate name in English. If it had been named "Value Added Fee" or "Value Added Charge" from the start it would have been more in line.
