Niederlassungsbewilligung C and Quellensteuer

Hello,

I currently have a Niederlassungsbewilligung C and I have been submitting a Steuererklärung. Does anybody know if it is possible to go back and pay taxes at source?

Thanks!

Hi JoeUk,

It always depends on the person and the situation. In my case I see no benefits after doing it for 2 years. I dont want to go back to a b permit, I would like C plus quellensteuer. My question was if this combination is possible.

Sorry misunderstood your original question. No.

Foreigners residing in Switzerland with a permanent residence permit (Permit C) declare their income and assets with the normal tax return.

Well... you can always ask your tax office.

My husband is Swiss and when we were in the UK, he came back to Switzerland for 3 months to work. He asked to pay Quellensteuer as he couldn't be bothered with a tax return later when he would be back in the UK ..... they let him.

Don't you end up paying more with Quellensteuer?

Probably not very different, on average unless you have larger than normal deductions.

Depends where you live, QS is taxed at the Cantonal average tax rate. In a low tax commune you will pay less, high tax more.
