Tax advice

I'm an expat living in Basel and until now I've been paying a lot of money to have someone do my annual Swiss income tax for me. Now that I have recently retired, and am time rich but money poor, I would like to try doing it myself. Can anyone recommend a good English-speaking person to go to for tax advice if I have any problems?

Re: Tax advice

Maybe start by downloading the tax software

Re: Tax advice

Thanks. Do you know if they have anything in English, or even French would be a big help?

Re: Tax advice

Doesn't look like it. Maybe you can download a similar tax program from a french speaking canton. At least then you can fill out the form for the federal tax. Otherwise use a translator like leo.org.

Re: Tax advice

If you have the forms from the previous years it should be easy enough to do. And why not ask your tax office if there's someone there who could go over the form with you?
