Incorrect quelllensteuer (tax at source)

A young couple I know have just moved into BL. They're married and expecting a baby any minute now. He works, she doesn't. They're registered as konfessionslos (at least, that's what he tells me).

But he's been placed on tariff A0Y - single person, no kids, church tax.

He's currently paying around 450CHF per month tax. He should be on B0N, and only be paying 120CHF per month. He's told his employer, and they've just said that it doesn't matter, doesn't make much difference (clearly it does. 330 francs a month might not be much to them...). On such a low income he won't be filling in a tax return either.

So the question is: should he just go direct to the tax authorities, or should he push it with his employer. He's a bit leary about the latter, as he's only on a 3 month initial contract.

Re: Incorrect quelllensteuer (tax at source)

It could be that the employer did not receive the confirmation for the tax scale yet, hence they chose the highest one. I assume the employer will retroactively correct it once they receive confirmation.

I believe it's the employer that needs to sort it out, it sounds as they don't have many foreigners working for the co so don't know the rules properly. Speaking to the person who does the salary run, with a print out showing BON should help.

Re: Incorrect quelllensteuer (tax at source)

He has at least time up to March 31 next year to get it sorted out. Or, as it is plainly the wrong tariff, even up to 5 years.


If the employer does not change it by themselves I suggest to contact the cantons tax office, department "Quellensteuer".

My thought was that they presumed he would be filing a tax return so he would get it back in the end, as with the case with Swiss, C permit holders, and better off B permit holders.

Still their job to get it right. It's a daft assumption to make. It's not as if they pay their employees much.
