Only two years is nothing, I've seen 5!

A friend of mine is waiting 8 years and still counting. But it's a very complicated case involving the inheritance of some money that apparently had been stolen by the person who died. I think the lawyers are still arguing about it.

My local tax office is usually faster processing refunds than demands.

Not surprising: I got my tax invoice 2 year later and it included interests for the two years....

Re: Two years for Tax Return Review and Refund?!?!?!?!

We are also waiting for a refund from Kanton Zurich; it will be two years this April. I have been told that one should be happy if the refund is late as the interest rate applied is much higher than the "nominal"/official rate. We shall see...

More than you get on a savings account.

2008 - 2011 2%
2012 - 2015 1.5%
2016 - 2019 0.5%
since 2020 0.25%

Other cantons, other numbers.
