Re: IT Contracting Tax Burden

Interesting. I've googled for tax rate in Switzerland and found Comparis. It estimated my taxes for Zurich as 13%. This however puts taxes for Zurich as 28.25%. Why there is so big difference ?
without looking at it my guess would be the higher of the two is the marginal tax rate (i.e., the tax you pay on one additional CHF earned), the lower - and more relevant - is the average tax rate. So the 13% is what you multiply your total annual taxable income with in order to get to your tax bill.
