Hello, fellow expats!
I am a German national living in Switzerland, working for a foreign embassy in Berne. (Not the German one.)
Since my employer is kind of an ecxeption and does not pay social security etc. on my behalf, they also do not subtract and pay taxes (Quellensteuer) on my behalf either. When I asked the city office what to do, they told me (and a German colleague of mine) that they had no idea.
Obviously, I wouldn't mind not paying taxes (although it seems unfair to those who do), but I am scared of a giant tax bill suddenly hitting me next year.
Is anyone in the same situation and knows what to do?
Additional information: While I work in Berne, I live in Geneva and will try to ask there as well. You'd assume that they see this problem more often with all their international organisations. Unfortunately, my French is barely intermediate and not yet at the level I can have complicated discussions with government officials...
Thank you in advance!
