Permit B, change of canton announcement to tax office

Hi,

I am soon moving from Geneva to another canton under permis B and went today to the tax office to hand in my formulaire de depart.

Besides that I have been treated quite rarely in my life as unfriendly and hostile as today, they did not accepted to take in my formulaire.

On the back of the formulaire it is written that one needs only to attach a copy of the new rental contract if one stays in Switzerland, so that is the only thing I provided. However, they are demanding "releves bancaires" and "attestations quittances". This puzzles me because these documents are listed to be provided only for persons who quit Switzerland.

Any insights would be appreciated. Would like to know if I really need to provide these documents to change canton ?

Thx

Do you have a link to said form?
Did you get approval to change canton?

I am EU, so no approval needed.

How could I know? That is important information.

Have you ever submitted a "Questionnaire fortune concernant les étrangers au bénéfice d’un permis de séjour" ?

It's certainly in your interest to provide all the information requested by the Geneva tax authorities when you leave that canton for another. Your new canton of residence on 31 Dec 2019 will be responsible for your taxation this year, and you will want to get reimbursed the advance payments that you made in Geneva. Even when providing all the required information, and sending them regular reminders, it took me a couple of years to get my tax dossier in Geneva closed out after I moved to canton Vaud.

Re: Permit B, change of canton announcement to tax office

Found now this:

https://www.ge.ch/document/directive...on-source-2019

Section 7.5

Its contradictionary to the formulaire for departure announcement. In the directives they do not distinguish between leaving Switzerland and leaving for another canton ...

Anyone knows what is going on ?
