Do I Need to File A Tax Return?

Hello I was wondering if i could get some help, I just received the tax return forms? and it looks complicated. I have Dual Nationality, moved in Zurich from Sep 2017-Sep 2018, renting an apt with saved money and worked a few part time jobs here n there, earning no more than 5k a month. Is it neccessary, im going back home after summer. What happens if I dont file anything?

I would greatly appreciate any feedback and advice. thanks

As you are Swiss, it's required, and you will be heavily fined if you don't.

And no, it's not complicated at all.

You fill out the main form, and form #2, and any other forms that relate to you, and don't fill out the forms that don't.

You most likely want to fill out the insurance one as it saves you money.

Round to whole CHF.

Anyway, just go to your local tax office and ask for help, they will show you what to do for free.

Also, on the forms that you do fill out, most of it gets left blank as you only fill out the lines that relate to you.
