Tax declaration on overseas asset.

Hi there this is my first post. be kind.

I am a little confused about this situation, maybe somebody here has had to make the same declaration.

I own a small flat in another country (with a mortgage) from before I was married to a Swiss citizen.

  1. Do I have to declare this as a joint asset at its current value?
  2. If so what sort of tax % would I be looking at paying on it?
  3. Is there an amount that is exempt from taxation in Switzerland?
  4. If I am receiving rent into an overseas bank account, but this is being used to cover mortgage repayments, maintenance and property management etc. do I need to declare this as income?

I hate the idea that I have to pay tax on my flat in two different countries, especially if I am not a citizen of one of those countries.

I hope someone can fill me in on this situation, I did look at previous posts but couldn't find a match.
