Tax Deductions; taxed at source

Hi there.

I've just completed my first full swiss year and I've found a 'Declaration D'impot simplifiee 2018' on my desk.

I have read that various costs can be tax deducted; however as I am taxed at source and do not require to do a tax return. Is it really worth trying to process the deductions? Looking at the amount of evidence you must submit; I am just wondering how much you can realistically deduct back versus the work to collate all the evidence!

I have not had any major medical / insurance issues to claim against; so it would be just trying for the organic deductions plus potential insurance premiums

Is this something expats all generally complete anyway or only if there is a specific large cost to claim against?

Thanks

You do benefit from some tax deductions whether you know it or not.

Re: Tax Deductions; taxed at source

Looks like in Vaud there is no implied travel and food expenses in the tax at source. So it would make sense to fill in the simplified return.

The doc explicitly mention that health insurance premiums are not deductible. That makes me wonder, are they deductible on the full taxation?

Yes, but not fully. Here they are capped at 5200/person or so.
