Re: Average Cost of Tax Submission

For the CHF 1000 we were quoted I thought that I would give it a go myself.

In my second year here, I downloaded the eTax program and translated all the fields. The biggest problem was finding out what rates to convert the different currencies and the different rates for year end (assets) and incomes/expenses - and the tax office helped me with that.

You need to submit copies of all your forms with the tax declaration and they do check all what you have entered. I put the wrong figure for a couple of mortgages that year (I had 6 that year) and they corrected it.

Finding out what I can and can't claim is invaluable. I know now that I can basically do any course and claim it and my office at home, provided it is used 3 days every week. Now I know why all my neighbours have an office at home.
I reckon it's worth it for me at 150 CHFs.

I probably *could* do it myself now, but I think of the 150 as insurance.
