Military taxes - Ersatzpflicht

I lived 15 years abroad and came back to my country two years ago. (I'm 28 years now).

I recived some taxes to pay since I didn't concluded the military service (I came voluntarly for some time in 2008 but didn't finished it...).

Now I came accross this:

Quote:
Schweizer die in der zweiten Jahreshälfte ihren Wohnsitz wieder in die Schweiz legen und zuvor mindestens drei Jahre ununterbrochen im Ausland gewohnt haben, sind für das Zuzugsjahr von der Ersatzpflicht befreit.
So is it possible to be released from this taxes?

Nope - the text says, that you can be exempt for this tax IN THIS YEAR, if you are a returning CH citizen that came back in the second half of said year and lived overseas for at least 3 consecutive years.

That's only a temporary relief, no general exemption.

If your native language is German, as your Profile says, why did you come to an English-language forum to ask for translation assistance? Just wondering.

Native as in early childhood. Not my primary language after I moved out of the country... Also the reason why I got dismissed after some months on duty

However you are probably still liable for civil defence duties (am a little surprised you haven't been called up yet). If you do civil defence duties you will get relief on the military tax, depending on the number of days you serve.
