Double canton tax refund after moving cantons
 
I've search the forum but not found an answer.

We've moved cantons at the end of last year and as a result have had to pay a full year of tax in each canton (Geneva and Bern).

I've only just submitted the tax declaration to Bern for last year - but as I registered properly when we moved, they have sent me tax bills, which I've paid.

So the question is how do I get my tax back from Geneva canton? People tell me I shall get it back and Bern will get the full year's taxes - but no one can tell me how to get it back. I can't find anything on the Geneva canton website to tell me.

Anyone know what the procedure is (or where the instructions are on the Geneva tax website)?

Cheers

I do not know how to do it, but I know it can be a cumbersome procedure:

It would have been best not to pay either. ;)

Hi, did it eventually work? Did you manage to return the second tax?

It worked out just fine. Geneva returned the money in a few weeks after the request was made. But it wasnít until all the new canton was paid up and happy.
Iím afraid after three years I canít quite remember the procedure. Just that it was fine in the end and not much hassle and it only happened after the new canton finished completely

Re: Double canton tax refund after moving cantons
 
So I am on C and need to pre-pay estimate of my 2020 taxes by the end of July to Kt. Solothurn. I am in the meantime moving back to Kt. ZH before July. As you can imagine, I am not super thrilled about pre-paying Solothurn taxes instead of ZŁrich taxes, let alone pre-paying both!

I'll get in touch with the Steueramt here and try to get myself off their hitlist for 2020. I will post it here in case this will be applicable to other kanton changes since I doubt many would be going SO->ZH.:cool:

Hi all,
I moved from AG to JU.
AG had already received my taxes for the year.
AG had to transfer the taxes of the year to JU. ( JU came with extra bill)


I wonder if it is canton related or is it same for all canton? meaning you pay full year to the canton where you relocate to.

@ Bozza, any news?

Regards,

I only pay once I have received the final bill, no pre-pay.

Oh, thanks for the reminder. I emailed Kt. SO, they said that if I move out during the year I don't need to prepay, even though prepayment is due through the year. So the money is sitting in my bank account ready for Kt. ZH to pounce once I register there (in a few weeks).

@St. Lemans, don't you have to pay interest if you don't pay the prepayment bills that they send?
