Whats the limit for "wealth tax" ?

Hi all,

as its soon tax papers season again i was wondering if anyone knows what is the cut off point for "wealth tax" in ZH??

ie you have a new car - you pay a tax on that and if you have x amount in the bank you will pay tax on that also.

what are the limits?

thanks

For a single person it's CHF71K, for a married couple I think double that.

Just to keep this simple:

If you get home with dirt under your fingernails = no extra tax to pay
