Re: Already got a tax invoice before 2015 year end??!!

I guess tax is a major reason people move to Zug. Should not really have come as a surprise, the prompt demand.

As multiple EFers have said above, Cantonal provisional bills are usually in advance based on previous years submission. Federal provisional bills are usually send soon after the year ends e.g. for Tax Year 2015, provisional Cantonal bill sent out in middle 2015 and provisional Federal bill sent out in eary 2016.

If you are really bothered that it overstates your income, call the Zug tax office and tell them your last reported taxable income from whatever canton you moved from. They should be ok to take that as a basis and send a lowered provisional demand.

Usually the Tax office gives you better interest on overpaid tax than your friendly neighbourhood bank. Keep that in mind.
