Understanding transition from Quellensteuer to Tax returns
I live in Zug and throughout the year I was just below the 110k limit so was always paying through my employer, at source.
Now I switched jobs, work in ZH and I am exactly at 120k. I am not sure what happens now and what I should be looking out for.
1) Since 9 out of the year's 12 months I was paid at source, my first actual salary that triggers a tax return will be on October.
Will I get a tax return request from the Zug office or will it happen next year as I have already been taxed at source for most of the year?
2) If I do get asked to do a tax return, I guess it will be for the whole 12 months of 2015 and if I overpaid get a refund or vice versa pay back what's missing?
3) Is there anything I need to be extra careful about when doing my first return? I have been reading on older threads for tips but wonder if there is something I need to be extra careful about.
4) Which gemeinde I live now in matters right? Unlike tax at source, taxes vary if you live in Cham, Baar or Zug.
As always, thanks in advance for all the help!
P.S It's not actually from 120,001 chf that this gets triggered right?
