Re: Tax on foreign rental property on software, how exactly?


Thanks for your answer, but I´m still confused.

First of all, is the premise correct? Is it really true that when I have a rental income, I should only see a tax bracket increase, but the Steuerbar Einkommen should be the same? Because if this is not true, well, the rest doesn´t follow.

If this is really the way it is. Then when I run the Steuerauscheidung with 10k rental income, I get:

1. An added income into the Steuerbar Einkommen of 8000, going straight to my base (Total der Einkunfte)
2. A mere 1098 CHF deducted from the base under "Auf steuerbare Einkunfte im Ausland¨ further down, so that my total Steuerbar Einkommen increases by almost 7k. Shouldn´t this be 8k instead of 1k under the premise above?

I don´t think there is any more detail on this, nor do I see how the 1098 CHF figure is produced at all. But it does have a significant impact on the final tax.

EDIT: By the way, there´s a big disclaimer that this calculation done by the program could be wrong due to the complexities that go into it. Maybe this is what´s happening?
