Tax on imputed rental value bought at end of year

Hi everyone, I have a question for the experts or anyone in the same situation with me.
I bought an appartment at the end of 2018, to be precice on 15th of December 2018.
Now while doing the tax declaration I am declaring the imputed rental value which is something like 20K based on the paper I received by the Gemeinde and this and goes of course on top of my income.. But since I only had the house for only 15 days in 2018 I find it weird that I have to put the whole 20K imputed rental value.. Shouldnt it be pro-rated based for only those 15 days? But there is no mention about this in the tax declaration instructions..

thanks a lot

Looks like your Eigenmietwert liability should be prorated.

From the ZH Steueramt:

https://www.steueramt.zh.ch/internet...steuerung.html

Damit setzt die Eigenmietwertbesteuerung grundsätzlich im Zeitpunkt der Handänderung (Eigentumsübertragung) bzw. der Übergabe des fertig erstellen Werkes (Bezugsbereitschaft) ein.

Bringt der Steuerpflichtige vor, dass er die Liegenschaft erst zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt effektiv bezogen hat, setzt die Eigenmietwertbesteuerung erst ab diesem Zeitpunkt ein, sofern die Zeitspanne zwischen der Handänderung bzw. der Bezugsbereitschaft und dem effektiven Bezug nicht ungebührlich lange ausfällt.



But I'm just a random stranger on t'internet... your best move would be to ask the Steueramt.

You put the full value, and they pro-rate it for you.
