Tax at Source

Your taxes are deducted each month from your salary. You do not have to file a return form. However, there are three cases in which you must fill out a simplified declaration which can be found on the site of the taxes at source ( /) and to deliver it until March 31st of the following year (for example, Tax 2016 = document to be completed until 31 March 2017). The document is online between mid-December and January.

Cases when the document must be completed:

- If your annual gross salary is higher than 120’000 CHF
- If your fortune is higher than 56'000 CHF (single person) or 112'000 CHF (couple)
- If you have real estate in Switzerland (if your property is abroad, there is currently no rule but you have to declare it to the tax office at source)
