Re: Tax reduction when spouse becomes unemployed

View Post
I remember when arriving in Zürich that I was asked if my spouse was "gainfully employed". Thankfully, they were employed first by a foreign, then by a Swiss company. However, my spouse's contract will be ending, and they will likely be employed for some period of time while finding the next gig.

Am I correct that if they are unemployed I am entitled to a reduction in my taxes as the single earner? I realize this is just a few hundred a month, but everything helps.

If so, whom do I contact about making this update? I assume part of "Sadt Zürich", but which department?

Thank you in advance for any guidance.
I don't understand this question.
If you hand in a tax declaration, the income will be lower next time (unemployment benefits are taxed as already mentioned).
If you have a B permit, each of you have their own tax-at-source deduction, no?
So why do you expect a deduction? I'm seriously asking.
