How secret is my tax statement?
Your tax liability, and hence your assets and income are not always completely confidential in Switzerland!

In certain Cantons your confidential details can be seen by anyone - for a fee!

Re: How secret is my tax statement?
Your tax forms are not secret at all. It's one of the silly aspects of living in Switzerland.

But everyone can write a letter with signature stating that informations are to be kept with the tax department only.

Nowadays if someone is asking for information, you only get the amount of the paid tax, meaning no figures. Earlier in the 80's they gave the whole tax forms including bank statements to anyone who wanted them, e.g your neighbor
