You want to go for the Swiss pass? You know that you will forfeit the Dutch one?

Congrats by the way :-)
Thank you! We are not thinking much about naturalization yet, but indeed someone told me that I would lose my Dutch pass.

What I wonder, how does the Dutch government know about a Dutch getting a Swiss pass?

Very simple, you have to show your permit and Wohnsitzbescheinigung to get a new passport. That will tell them what nationalities you have.

Only chance here is when you are married to a Swiss person.

As ridiculous as wrong. It is CHF 10'100 per child. See page 22 https://www.steueramt.zh.ch/internet...017_HA+DEF.pdf
Wow that is great news - my 2nd one was born only this year but the way I understood the tax form was 10K max for the family - for once I’m happy to be wrong 😄

Re: Recalculating - Neuveranlagung Quellensteur ZH

...resuming the story.

In december I filled a complaint with the Quellensteuer department, requesting a redistribution of our deductions. So, no changes to the income side (that one is clearly defined in the law), just a "smarter" distribution of our deductions that would save provide us with about 700 extra francs. We got a reply, with the redistribution being denied.

looking at the quellensteuer law I already found it a "grey area", as no clear regulations are given how to discount the deductions from the monthly incomes. Their answer for not doing it was something as "it is our experience that we split the total deductions over 12 equal parcels, to avoid that eg a 3te Säule is discounted in one single month... so that discounts get applied to maximize the tax discount - until now this has not been challenged". Based on this willingness to maximize our tax return that I applied for the smarter redistribution of deductions...

In our complaint we also mentioned we were willing to go the their office, defend our claim. That is based on the law, paragraph 141, point 2: "Der Steuerpflichtige ist berechtigt, seine Einsprache vor dem kantonalen Steueramt mündlich zu vertreten." I asked if I can still go there And of course there is the "rekurs", but that can get expensive.

best regards,
Erik
