Withholding tax calculator contains all?

Hi all,

I've a permit B and I'm resident in Canton Zurich.

I think my payroll is completely wrong. I', taxed 21% on my salary... and I can say that I'm well below 120k per year...

The question I didn't find in previous posts is: the online calculator https://en.comparis.ch/steuern/quell...lensteuer.aspx

gives the taxes all included? I mean, what I see in my netto Loan every month is my brutto minus the monthly taxes that this calculator is giving me?

In this case, I'm paying more then double I should.. Who should I ask for fixing this ?


Many thanks for your help!

Pardon me for stating the obvious, but why don't you ask your payroll department? It's quite likely they'll be able to explain all deductions from your salary.
Just saying....

Are you sure it's just the tax element and doesn't include other things like the pension contribution, etc?

In any case if you think it's wrong you should talk to your HR person/department about it.

No payroll department, I work in a little company that is giving the work out. I should contact this person that speaks only swiss german next week... I know...

But I would like to understand if there is an issue or I'm just doing a big mistake. Do you know if this calculator is considering also the Social Security Insurance, Unemployment Insurance, Pension... or it's just calculating the tax?

Only the tax as far as I can see from the website. It specifically says withholding taxes. I doubt it could even take some of the other stuff into consideration as this can vary from company to company.
