Tax declaration online


I have always used the software private tax which requires me to end up mailing a ton of paper (the declaration and all the attached documents).

I know that there is a way to do the tax declaration online but I was always told I would need to start it from scratch (and not import my declaration from the previous year and just change the numbers...).

Is it still the case or can I use my .ptaxYY file online next year as a starting point ?
If yes, I guess I can just scan all the supporting documents and send everything online ?

The idea would be to save paper...

Thank you

Re: Tax declaration online

The instructions for ZHprivateTax/ ZHprivate Tax-Light online software, linked below, say (translated):

"Change from offline to online tax return

The first time you create your online tax return, you can import the data from the previous year's offline tax return by importing the saved file (*.ptax)."
