Quellensteuer tax / Bonus gone?

Has anyone experienced seeing their bonus evaporate due to a crazy % rate on quellensteuer? Is there anything one can do to avoid this jump in the tax bracket (in my case went from 11% to 28%)?

I normally present my tax form every year, but so far I have not seen a penny back (2 tax declarations submitted for 2014 & 2015) - how long does it normally take to hear back from the tax guys?

Re: Quellensteuer tax / Bonus gone?

well, that must have been an nice bonus. No, nothing much you can do to avoid the tax deduction on that. Try to use money for pillar 2 and 3a for example might help.

Not having heard anything on 2014 and 2015 is very normal. It took them 2 years to get back on my tax filings from 2012 and 2013 and I only recently got feedback on 2014.
