Tax at source 1st + 2nd pillar

Hi everyone,

I browsed around for information regarding the concept of tax at source and would like to check my understanding.

I was taxed on monthly gross salary so I've paid taxes on 1st and 2nd pillar contributions. I didn't have additional contributions to 2nd pillar and no 3rd pillar.

So at first I thought I would need to get a refund on taxes from those contributions. But since tax-at-source uses a lower tax rate to adjust for taxes on contributions, I shouldn't get a refund?

Just want to confirm that everything's ok and I don't need to file for refunds.

Thanks in advance

Unfortunately you won't be getting a refund!
