Lump-Sum Expenses are to be declared as Salary income?

Hi all,

I am preparing my Swiss Tax Return and have some doubts concerning how to declare the salary:

a) Do I have to declare the Expenses Lump Sum my husband is granted as an executive? It is located in the Lohnausweis right under the withholding tax and is called "Spesenvergütungen". My doubt is whether it is considered a non-taxable Refund of expenses or part of the salary. I have read the "instructions" of the Steuererklärung and it states that the amount of salary income to be declared is the figure stated in the certificate as Nettolohn. The amount I am making reference to is underneath the Nettolohn, so I don't know how to deal with it.

b) The same question regarding the amount the company paid last year to a tax advisor to prepare my tax form, which is part of the 2010 salary. Do I add it to the Gross salary income?

Anyone has experience with these issues?

Thanks in advance.
