Re: Got C Permit - How does this impact tax?

But isn't the key question here is what the difference from B and going to C? Any savings or changes? I think one change is Quellensteuer. This is a standard deductible. Then you get only an accurate rebait based on what you should have paid only after your tax return. With C there's no Quellensteuer but something's else?
Lots of different things you can claim like medical insurance premiums allowance, allowance for meals at work, outstanding credit card balances, maybe even to/from work travel costs are just a few of them. Depends on the canton I guess, but certainly can claim for those and more here in Fribourg.

I use Denise too, and she does a great job. Charges me about 150 CHF. I have had 2 Tax returns filed by her and all have been good so far.

500 CHF to me sounds very excesive!
How can I get in contact with Denise? Is there a website or phone number someone could pass on? I have just been moved from B to C permit and will have to do taxes for the first time myself. I speak German fluently though, so language should not be an issue. However, I am a bit nervous about filling in the tax forms for the first time without any advising assistant.
Thanks for helping out here.

Re: Got C Permit - How does this impact tax?

I gave up doing the tax thing myself. Had a tax adviser paid by the company the 1st year and tried to replicate it the next 2 years myself.... Due to the long delay of statement of the tax authority I only noted too late that I had to pay a significant amount on top of my Quellensteuer each of these 2 Years

Since then I left it with a tax advisor again ... and get a meaningful tax return EVERY time. Absolutely worth the 300 chf paid for the Tax advisor.

It looks so easy, but obviously there is a lot of opportunities to mess it up

Completely Independent from C or B permit ...

With C just make sure that you pay your tax upfront as early in the year as possible. It earns an interest of currently 1.5% - that is much more than what the Bank pays for my savings account and it is a really safe deposit with the tax authority

but if your husband is Swiss he should know the Swiss tax system ....???

I just finished getting my taxes done by Denise also. I have nothing but glowing feedback for her. It was really simple and the service was great! I will definitely be using her from now on.
