Tax comparisons between Switzerland and France

Does anyone know of a website that can approximate the differences in owed taxes (inc. social security payouts) between these two countries? I know that France is higher, but how much more and that it also depends on how much one earns. I know social security is quite high in France.

I also realise that taxes even in Switzerland differ based on the canton and even the village, but I am just looking to get an idea.

Any thoughts?

Re: Tax comparisons between Switzerland and France

Guess what? It's complicated. Feel free to PM me.

In my case: payrolling, married, no tax deductible kids, there is a 20% difference in net income between France and Geneva, due to social costs . Income tax is almost identical (surprisingly).

BUT As a non-salaried French resident, I have to pay my obligatory medical coverage out of my Swiss income, which is 8% of net income (from all sources) (CMU system). Whereas my French tax includes buying in to the French Social Security System, including medical and unemployment benefits. In both cases, most people will subscribe to a top-up private medical insurance ("mutuelle").

So, Swiss + CMU looks cheaper, BUT the CMU is calculated on your income two years previously and I have just been forced out of a very well paid job, so the CMU is hurting me.

Yep, complicated...
