Re: Marriage and Taxation - Please Help!

My experience in Kanton Zürich is the opposite.

Pre-marriage both earning 100k - taxed at 15%.
So in total we both paid around 30k a year in tax.

When we got married they took our joint earning as 200k and charged 45% tax (higher earnings higher tax bracket) So now our tax bill is 45k a year, or an increase/penalty of 15k for getting married.
Yes, but 200K vs 104K is quite different. Tax rates are progressive.
