Re: Short term capital gains taxes in switzerland

bill_door, tnx for the good answers. The sttategy you describe is what i'm planning to do - selling covered calls on my 3 long term ETFs. I don't have time for weekly trading so I would set them up once per month. Maybe this could be understood as hedging, thou, its more than that if we are being honest.

I also don't mind paying taxes on sold puts and calls. It's normal. Lets say I make 10% capital gain on my long portfolio by simple buy and hold strategy. And on that I make few thousand CHF on selling/buying options. As I said, please tax my options, but leave my capital gain alone. Would this be something that tax authorities would understand?

I also have a B visum so I'm taxed at the source.
