3a related question

Hi all,
I am on B permit and pay tax at source and live in canton Bern. Last year i have decided to open a 3a pillar account at PostFinance.
Because i am limited in German, it was not clear for me what the person from PostFinance told me.

Therefore i would like to ask whether i have to inform my Employer about the fact that i have opened a 3a or not and just include this info in the tax declaration(this would be the first when i will be filling the tax declaration)?

Thank you for any idea or suggestion,

Re: 3a related question

No need to inform the employer or pension company. It is none of their business.

If you file a regular tax declaration deduct the pillar 3a contribution.

If you do not file regular tax fill in the Form "Antrag NOV" See https://www.sv.fin.be.ch/sv_fin/de/i...lensteuer.html

Has to be sent in before March 31, 20XY+1, where 20XY is the relevant tax year you paid into pillar 3a.

Do not forget to submit the special bank statement for tax purposes you got at the end of the year.
