Moving from canton Geneva to Zurich

Hi all. I will be moving from Geneva to Zurich in the middle of the year. I am very confused about taxes! I make over 120k and have a B-permit (EU) so in Geneva I have been taxed at source. In Zurich, I understand that I will have to do a mandatory tax return. Things I am a little lost about...

(1) I want to understand what my net income will be in Zurich. In Geneva, the tax brackets (baremes) are posted on the ge.ch website so I was always able to easily calculate what my tax rate is (since online calculators are inaccurate). I can't find tax brackets on the zh.ch website...

(2) Seeing as I will be moving mid-year, I am getting conflicting info on whether I will be taxed for the full year in Zurich (lower tax %) or have split-year treatment (half year in Geneva, half year in Zurich).

(3) My tax advisor from Geneva is AMAZING and super cheap... he used to do my tax rectification every year in Geneva. But he doesn't have Zurich tax expertise.... Perhaps someone can recommend me an awesome (and not expensive) tax advisor/tax return expert in Zurich?

(4) In general, has anyone here done a Geneva-Zurich move, and has some tips and tricks they can share?

As always, many thanks in advance EF people! You're the best : msncool:

Re: Moving from canton Geneva to Zurich
