Re: Tax For Foreign Earnings ?

Bloody hell ! A quarter of my income !!! Might have to re-think this one...What if my wife buys the house and I come and go as a tourist ? (I would be away working at least 50% of the time).
24% is low. In New Zealand the top tax bracket was 40%, with average tax around 33%.

In Germany taxes are also higher. During reunification, up to 50% or more.

Remember too: Switzerland has wealth tax. In Zurich a 1m CHF house will cost around 2,500 in wealth tax each year.

Taxes would be lower if everybody paid their share - if you try to avoid paying tax, we have to subsidise you with our taxes.

Does that sound fair?
