Anyone done the move from Basel Stadt to Allschwil?

Hello,

Has anyone moved apartment in recent years, from Basel Stadt to Basel land (Allschwil to be precise?). If so, please could you share some tips on what the implications might be regarding:

- Tax system differences? (I submit tax returns even though I get taxed at source in BS [above the 120K]). I am married, wife not working, we one child.
- Does the number of years spent in switzerland reset to zero if we move to BL? (I am on B permit, have been here for 3.5 years)

- anything else I should watch out for regarding Allschwil in particular [additonal taxes, fees, etc]?

I have tried to search on the forum for previous posts but nothing comes up (looked for related posts about Allscwil-tax, or Allschwil-move etc. nothing found)

Any help much appreciated!

Re: Anyone done the move from Basel Stadt to Allschwil?

Thanks, I did a rough calculation of tax differences before.
I guess I should have clarified better in my question: specifically, regarding taxes, if i move half way through the year how does one deal with tax submission with BS vs. Allschwil... do you end up submitting (and paying) to both cantons? Do they work it out between them? I guess I need to call them up! but in case there are some nightmare experiences to be aware of.....!

You pay taxes where you are resident at year end for the whole year.

AFAIK, BL asks for taxes in the same time period as BS. This is not always the case, e.g. SO requires ~2/3 of taxes to be paid in the tax year, the balance the following year.

Re: Anyone done the move from Basel Stadt to Allschwil?

I moved from BS to BL in 2009 and entered the mother of all tax battles. Apparently some time ago the cantons all agreed how to deal with tax revenue in such cases -- namely, the home canton as at 31 December of the tax-payer snares the tax revenue, IIRC (although maybe there was some sort of arrangement between the cantons to split the revenue). All the cantons, that is, but BS and BL, of course, the only two cantons not to sign up to this mutual arrangement. The argument between the two escalated and went all the way up through the court system. It was finally settled late last year. The net result has been that all my tax returns from 2009 onwards have been held up in a bottleneck which has only recently been released. I still have not received final assessments for any of those tax years.

So -- yes, I advise you to go and ask the cantonal tax offices whether there are still any complications!

@homesick_alien, Thanks for posting. I was planning on posting a similar thread as we are considering a similar move from Basel Stadt to Allschwil.


Anyone on the forum living around Sandweg or Holeeweg areas in Allschwil. It will be interesting to know your experiences living there.

I think you'll really notice them for a few weeks.. then you you wont. Your brain seems to filter them out after a while (except for those two cargo jumbos that go over ! (only one flight out each per week))

I live in Binningen, and the planes fly directly over our house. We notice the noise (difficult not to - it's quite loud), but it doesn't bother us. I guess the closer you are to the airport the noisier it is, but there's not so many flights it causes a nuisance.

I moved out of Allschwil into BS because of the plane noise.
In the summer they crank up the charter flights from 6am onwards at the weekends, and they mostly take off and climb over Allschwil, on a curve directly over the dorfplatz.
Also they run up the engines from 5am, and if the wind is blowing towards Allschwil it is pretty clear.

It's a real pain if you have the windows open or want to sit outside, IMHO.
Depends on your tolerance to noise, I never got used to it.
There's a cafe in the dorfplatz and a couple of restaurants, go and sit outside for an hour and see what you think, on a day when the planes are climbing out over Allschwil.

The Sunday evening 747 cargo plane is pretty impressive though, as is the Super Constellation.
