Well I just made it on the Swisslotto, ha.

Hopefully no-one got the 40 million jackpot. Biggest question though is where do I need to declare these winnings?




Attachment 120160


THAT Jackpot is mine :P

the law was not so long ago adapted now you can have taxfree winnings for up to 1000CHf, higher win than that that....see below



Gambling winnings in Switzerland and abroad are taxable in all cantons. This includes wins from sports bets (pools). The lottery organisers retain 35 % of the money won in the form of anticipatory tax and transfer this amount to the Federal Tax Administration. This can be reclaimed when you correctly declare your win in your tax return.

The rate at which winnings are taxed depends on your canton of residence.
