C-Permit since August 2015 - Taxation?
I received as from September 2015 my C-Permit, and have confirmation from my work that I will not be taxed at source anymore since September 1st. So I guess this means that I get paid my full salary for the next 4 months, and then will have to my taxation for this period. However, I already (1 week into September!) received a payment slip to pay my taxes for 'Staats-und Gemeindesteuern 2015' for this period (01.09.2015 - 31.12.2015). I didn't expect to receive this so early, and also, the letter (1-page) looks awfully simple, I though that the tax declaration was a much more elaborate and difficult exercise, where you also though get the chance to declare certain payments/costs in order to lower your tax? When in the year do people do their taxation, and what is this that I have received? The letter does actually say it is a payment recommendation, but I would like to know whether I win/lose something by dealing with this now.
