Wrong Tax code

Hi All,

I need some advice on changin my tax code.
I recently changed jobs and i found out that I'm being taxed in the double earner tariff, this was correct until the beginning of the year 2013. As it happens my wife is no longer working. So therefore our tax regime should change from C to B correct?
How to notify the tax authority so they can change my tax code from C to B, as i'm the single earner for the family?

Cheers

Re: Wrong Tax code

Did you inform the city's tax office that your wife stopped working?

Re: Wrong Tax code

When I was in your situation a few years ago, I just went down to the local tax office and they send a note with the new tax code to my employer's payroll. Up to here all well and good as they adjusted my code quickly and started to deduct tax at the lower rate.

However, 2 months later my husband started working again so we went back to the local tax office and again they adjusted the tax code. However, this time my employer did not act on this so they under-deducted tax at source for 3 years and I had huge tax bills when I filed my tax returns as a result. I hadn't realised that was the reason why I had to pay more.

I recently moved cantons and my employer received a notice with my new tax code. They then "realised" that they had under-deducted source tax and wanted to deduct back-dated even though I already paid via my tax returns. In the end we settled that they will just deduct the difference for 2013 - all of which does not make any sense to me as I will have a much lower tax bill for 2013 (lower tax location) and will get a repayment. But they insisted they must do it so I had a huge catch deduction - quite irritating.

Just mentioning all this as it is a good idea to check that our employer is applying the correct tax code.
