Tax percentage in Basel stadt

Hello,
Can anybody guide us how much is the tax percentage in basel stadt?

We are 2 adults and 2 kids with one salary...

It seems higher than we expected.

How can we reduce tax amount being paid?

How much is the tax difference if we move to Basel land?

Thanks a lot...

Go here:
http://www.steuer.bs.ch/quellensteuer.htm

there is a pdf on the page called Wegleitung und Tarife zur Quellenbesteuerung.
All the rates are there, depending on your salary and situation. There are different rates depending on whether you have one or two salaries, just find the correct table.

Income tax rate scale is not flat. See the calculators above.

Re: Tax percentage in Basel stadt

Seeing the comments in the unification thread about BS taxes made me check what we will pay when we move there.

The calculator said that the estimated difference was 3% lower effective tax rate in BS than I currently pay in Thun, BE. Is that a surprise to anybody else? I though BS was pretty much the highest in the country

I'm not surprised that you're surprised - BS has got a much worse reputation for tax than it deserves.

I just compared my tax bill in BS on Comparis against a few other towns around Switzerland: I pay practically the same here as in SO, BE or FR, a little bit more than if I lived in BL or VS, and considerably less than if I lived in GE, VD, NE or JU.

So for me, BS is very similar to other places in Western Deutschschweiz and clearly cheaper than Suisse Romande. Of course, the Innerschweiz cantons are the cheapest of all.

But don't forget, the biggest saving you make living in BS is doing your shopping ten minutes away in France and Germany With a family, that can be a bigger saving than any difference in tax.
