taxes on savings

Hello,
we have made some savings in some regular accounts(not Pillar xx). When it came to the tax form the guy doing the Steuererklarung included this amount as "Vermögen". These savings are from our salaries.
Do we expect some taxes to pay on this savings and, if yes, how much would the percentage.
Thank you for any idea

Re: taxes on savings

Yes, you pay minimal taxes. Percentage is different per Kanton, so it depends on the location.

Vermögenssteuer. Use this calculator from the canton BE, just enter the net wealth in the Vermögen box plus the necessary details.:

For a million you would pay around 4.5‰, which is 0.45%
