Re: Taxes in ZH with B permit

Ok, I have tried to find the information by myself. My reference is the manual for tax declaration 2019 Wegleitung zur Steuererklärung2019.

The relevant part should be at page 8, in the section "Ausländische Arbeitnehmer". It says that people earning more than 120k/year in the tax year (or even previous years) have to compile the tax modules. In the "Ergänzende Veranlagung zur Quellensteue" paragraph, it says that people with other source of revenue should also declare, making a few examples. It also says "oder Vermögen besitzt", but it doesn't without specify any value or amount of liquid money.

My take is that, even if I own >200k CHF on the bank account, I don't have to fill in any tax declaration module.
If anyone else could confirm this, or came to the same conclusion, please share with me/us
