Quellensteruer of married couple

Gentlemen,

I've been searching all over the forum for an answer, but I could not find coherence in the many post I've read.
Situation:

Married Couple
My salary 119K /yr
My wife salary 82k/yr

Do I have to fill a tax return or I can choose whether to do it or not?
Could you please indicate an official source to confirm the answer?

As far as I understand, either me OR my wife has to have a salary higher than 120K and not the sum of the two salary to be obliged to do a tax return.

Thank you for the answer,

Cheers,
Tommy

Re: Quellensteruer of married couple

These are some of the reasons why a taxpayer subject to source tax (Quellensteuer) would file a tax return in Ct. Bern:

1. Earned gross income exceeds CHF 120'000
- The tax office is to identify and send these taxpayers a tax return.
2. Assets are more than CHF 150'00
3. Unearned income exceed CHF 3'000

See this document for more information (German), which is also available in French:

Hi, thank you for your answer!

the 120k threshold is for each person or per sum of the two of us?

Thanks,
Tommy

Re: Quellensteruer of married couple

It's annual gross earnings per source-tax charged person (qsP):



"Wenn Sie als quellenbesteuerte Person (qsP)* einjährliches Bruttoeinkommen von mehr als CHF 120000 erzielen"
