Tax form from Stadt Zurich

I am in the process of filling out a form - handily sent to me in English - from Stadt Zurich that asks for info that will help them "check my tax status in the city of Zurich".

I don't have a job yet and never had (in Switzerland), I'm not a student or a sole trader, I don't receive any pension/social security over here as I'm not valid for it and I don't have more than 200,000 CHF in assets (the chance would be a fine thing) All the above are my answers to the questions in the form.

Then there is one that says "housewife/house-husband". Now I live with my girlfriend who is an EU citizen, B permit holder with a job etc, so we're not married and she isn't financially supporting me, but in terms of what I actually do with my day, "house husband" is probably the best description at the moment.

Does anyone know of any tax implications of ticking "house husband" vs not? We pay an all inclusive rent, so I'm not entirely sure what taxes Stadt Zurich could charge me?

I need to get this form posted off today, so any advice would be most welcome. I'm an L permit holder with health insurance all sorted out etc, if that makes any difference.

Cheers

Re: Tax form from Stadt Zurich

So you're living off your savings and having an extended holiday in Switzerland ? I'm assuming there's no children involved...

Are you theoretically a 'job hunter' ? Do you intend to go looking for a job any time soon ?

I wouldn't put 'house-husband/housewife' because you're not dependent financially on your partner/spouse... which is generally what's implied...

I'm guessing that you are theoretically a 'job hunter'/unemployed...unless you have a job back home that's paying your expenses ?

Re: Tax form from Stadt Zurich

Yeah I didn't tick "house husband" because of the implied financial reliance on my girlfriend, which isn't the case.

Added a note saying I'm unemployed, job-hunting, signed up with the RAV and have a "L" permit.

Haven't heard anything back or received any angry notes, so fingers crossed!!
