First Time B Permit Tax Filer

Hey Everyone -

I feel like I may have missed a deadline here for taxes.

B Permit (arrived in Zurich April 26 2018) - Like all expats over 120K

I'm pretty sure I've overpaid, as I'm on commissions that are paid monthly so the % of tax varies widely from month to month - but the %on the whole is less than what I've paid.. at least form my understanding.

I was under the impression that I was supposed to receive something from the Canton with my tax information so I could do the filing.

A coworker of mine from the EU is in kinda the same boat, her income just went above 120K this year. She called and inquired and was told just to wait and they will send it to her.

I'll be honest - I've done a few searches, but I'm not really finding what I think I need. Any pointers would be helpful - and also, if I had a tax person (which I still need) they could probably tell me. So still need that

I tried using one of the tax calculator things.. wow - that's rough if you don't speak any German!

Really appreciate the help everyone!

Dave

Well, the more I pay the Swiss, the less I pay the US, so I think I'm ok with that

Re: First Time B Permit Tax Filer

If you're on a B-permit and earning over 120k I believe you must inform the canton if you wish to file a full declaration.

I don't think they send you automatically unless you inform them or you have a C permit.
