Re: Tax For Foreign Earnings ?

24% is low. In New Zealand the top tax bracket was 40%, with average tax around 33%.
24% is not low compared to the 0% I pay right now.

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?
Yes it does. The reason is because I won't be in Switzerland for more than 48% of the time, and all my income is generated and earned outside Switzerland. I am therefore pumping wealth directly into the Swiss economy, taking none out, while using the communal property and services less than half of the time.

In effect my net contribution to the Swiss economy will be greater than that of someone actually working there - after all your tax comes from an income you have taken out of Switzerland. I shall be bringing fresh funds from outside the country.
