Cantonal Tax???

Hi,

I am wondering if anybody can shed any light on cantonal tax and how you pay it???

Myself and my husband have B permits and I don't work so its just hubbies wages. Currently deductions are being made for AHV contributions, UI contributions and Witholding Tax...does any of this cover cantonal tax and if not how do we pay it???

Thanks in advance for your help

Re: Cantonal Tax???

With "withholding tax", I assume you mean that tax is being deducted at source on a monthly basis. If this is the case, you will need to complete a tax declaration at the end of the year for the community in which you live and then the difference will be charged or refunded whichever is the case. This source
deduction usually more than adequately covers all income tax you would owe, i.e. federal (Bundessteuer), cantonal as well as communal.

Withholding tax includes federal, cantonal and community taxes.
