Deduction in taxes

For a citizen with L permit, can I deduct the Swiss travelcard in the taxes, and meal expenses (I eat at work because it is not possible to lunch at home)? Does it worth it?

Thanks

You get your tax deducted at source so I doubt it. Unless you're earning over 120k, then I guess you'd have to fill in a tax return like B permit holders do on that salary and over.

Re: Deduction in taxes

Isn't it going to change in 2021, i.e. from now on everyone has the right to file the tax return, you just need to ask at the local tax office if you're taxed at source.


OP, you won't benefit by that anyway as the meals and standard costs are already deducted (default average) in your tax at source. IMHO, you could benefit a lot if you have a family to support and you commute a long distance to your work.
