Switch from B to C and how to declare the already paid tax at source

Hi to all,

I have switched from B to C permit in Jun'18 and stopped paying tax at source since then.

Where in the tax return forms for 2018 do I declare the amount I already paid for tax at source? I can't seem to find the appropriate entry anywhere. Is this supposed to be declared somewhere?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

You donīt. The tax office will deduct it when working on your tax return.

The tax office will calculate it when they finalise your return - just make sure you include your annual salary statement from 2018 from your employer with the documents you send them. And check that they've used the correct amount when they finalise the return. The first year can sometimes be a bit muddled if it was a half year tax-at-source, but then should sort itself out for the second year.....

you just do your tax return for earnings and expenses since Jun 18 remember to only give how much you earned in that time not the full amount on the lohnausweiss

Are you sure about that? Seems to me declaring the amount earned for the whole year and adding a comment would be wiser.

Is that what you did or is it just a guess? thanks.

Tax office gave different answers. We filled both forms just to be sure:
One for recalculating tax-at-source;
one for tax declaration.

You just need the tax declaration, nothing else.

Exactly. A normal (full) tax declaration for all of 2018. They will credit the taxes withheld against the amount due.
