Re: If you rent two homes, where do you pay tax?

Do you really think the Tax authorities I quite so stupid and not fully aware of this trick? Otherwise we would all be at it, wouldn't we???
Well, the so called trick requires actually paying for two homes.
Regardless, from what I read about 29% of Swiss live in more than one home. So the question of what defines a primary residence for tax purposes is a common one.
This is an attempt to meet the requirement of residency in the lower tax area during Demeber, not an attempt to trick the tax authority.
In other words - I am looking at what to actually do, and plan to disclose the full truth of those actions to the tax authorities. As such it is completely legitimate tax planning.
