Thank you for your question -- yes, you will have to pay tax on pensions in Sweden, and according to the US-Sweden tax treaty, since it was earned by service performed in Sweden it's only taxable there -- it will not be taxable in the US. (Article 19)

Please let me know if you need anything additional -- if not, please rate positive.
