Tax return for temporary worker (< 1 year) with residence outside EU

Hi everyone!

I am staying on B permit and working for 4 month in Switzerland (Zurich) and my residence is outside the EU.

As far as I understand I am taxed under the assumption that my yearly income will be salary x 12, when in reality it is salary x 4 and should fall into different tax bracket.

Is it possible to do the tax return for this situation?
I would be grateful if you could share any relevant sources of information.

Thanks a lot for your help!

No, currently they don't do an averaging over the whole year.

Just today I heard from my lawier that we "won" our case against the Quellensteueramt. It is off course a different situation, but I can say that they are quite "hard" at the Quellensteueramt and will not accept any request for different treatment. If you have the time, read that thread.

You are being taxed correctly, unlike the UK you do not get an annual tax free allowance (£11500) that benefits people who work for less than a year.

Only if you live here the entire year, and have no other income.
