Re: Non-Swiss, non-resident, inherited property and taxation?

If the property is in Switzerland, you are taxed as per Swiss rules.

Likewise, for other countries (my wife inherited property in Italy, for example).

You pay taxes based upon your percentage of ownership.

Actually, if it is communally owned, you are liable for 100% and not just your part, in case the others don't pay, which is your case:

"When my father passed away, the apartment in his name was transferred to my mother's, sister's and my name (50:25:25) as per Swiss inheritance law."
