You are clear for 2002 but they could well bite at you for 2003... And you are quite correct that there are strict conditions attached to expat privileges...

The comment that they are illegal is however entirely new to me as this is an international agreement to allow free flow of executives to the benefit of international companies in various locations worldwide and not something the Swiss dreamt up overnight...

I doubt there is any 'international agreement' involved here. Its entirely local regulation that the large MNCs negotiated with the steueramt in Zurich canton.

I actually have a copy of the regulation and it clearly describes all tax benefits granted to expatriate specialists as 'illegal'. Let me know if you would like a copy by email..
