Missing Zugangscode for doing taxes online

I moved from ZH to AG, but after Dec 31, 2019, so I think this means I should do my Steuererklärung for ZH.

I assumed I could do this online. I have a Lohnausweis from my job and my AHV number. But no access code. I believe I should have gotten it in the mail. But I'm a bit worried it was kind of "my fault" I didn't get it, because I didn't set up mail forwarding from ZH to AG correctly (I had already deregistered from ZH so it didn't work when I tried).

I asked about this using this form: https://www.steueramt.zh.ch/internet..._kontakt1.html
But haven't received an answer after a couple of days.

Maybe it's fine but I also see now that I am past the deadline and should have asked for an extension. My plan is just that I will do it right away as soon as I get an access code.

But I'm also wondering: can someone confirm that temporary residents (in my case L permit) are able to do taxes online (in ZH at least)? I've seen things saying all "natural persons" can submit online but I don't know if this means only full citizens and for some reason maybe us expats have to jump through some other hoops.

I just finished US taxes and still have to do the FBAR but once that and ZH taxes are complete, then I think that's everything.

Re: Missing Zugangscode for doing taxes online

Do you earn more than 120k per year ? If not, you don’t need to do anything.

Oh really. Maybe that would explain not getting a Zugangscode.

I guess this is just ZH? I tried looking for AG... searched this pdf for "steuererklärung" and looked for numbers nearby that could be income level.
https://gesetzessammlungen.ag.ch/frontend/versions/2799

Searched for "schwellenwert" and aargau/steuererklärung online... not seeing anything. Also the AG tax website had a section for 18 year olds "doing you taxes for the first time?"... so that would actually seem there is no lower limit here. Not going to be many 18 year olds earning more than some kind of threshold value like this.

Not 100% on this, but L and B permits don't do tax declarations unless there's special reasons, one of which is if they're over 120k. C permits and Citizens do a tax declaration as well including 18 year olds.

Re: Missing Zugangscode for doing taxes online

Swiss and C permits do it for any income level, L and B, unless married to a Swiss or C, only do it above 120k (500k GE).

Sorry, what does "GE" in "500k GE" mean?
