Re: Income tax refund in Vaud - how long it takes?

In my parts it takes 3-4 months on average to be processed and dealt with. I do my tax form in February, and by June I get my final decision back. I guess I’m lucky!

I just received word from the ZH Tax people that my 2019 submission hasn't even been assigned to an assessor yet. Over 2k in returns are expected and God knows I could use that money right now! #HarleyParts

For the next tax year, keep in mind that in ZH you can simply underpay your provisional tax bill if you already know it's too high (or ask them to adjust the provisional bill). If you've overpaid, it is normally not possible to get anything back before the final tax bill, though. If you've paid too little you have to pay interest but that's only 0.25% p.a. at the moment (Ausgleichszins).

Re: Income tax refund in Vaud - how long it takes?

Here in NE canton, I received my return the following year (usually between Oct-Dec) every year.

For 2019 though it seems to be delayed. No word yet. I imagine it may be covid-related delays but not sure.

As an update to my post: I emailed the Zurich Tax Office and received the reply that they are still working on the 2018 tax refunds and that they should start looking at the 2019 assessments in Q3/4 of 2021.
