Impot a la source - do I still need to do a tax return?

Just realised that there is some sort of tax deadline tomorrow (moved to Geneva in June). They've been taking taxes on my salary and my employer I think has properly declared that I have a wife and two kids. I am the sole revenue generator in my household. Prior to June in the UK I was an unemployed entrepreneur. Tax situation couldn't be easier.

If I don't want to do a rectification - do I have to file anything? The website and information out there is absolutely awful. I tried to do the stuff online, but they'll only send me my tax login in 15 days. I downloaded the GE20 software but it's asking me for a code that I never received to do my taxes.

Long story short: do I have to file if the government already helped themselves to my money?

If I realise that they took too much, it clearly says in bright red letters that the deadline is the 31st of March to do any sort of rectification. I take it, this being Switzerland they mean it?

If you get paid under 250k and are taxed at source .. and you do not need to declare overseas property or some other significant source of wealth.

You don't need to do anything . .

There are loads of ifs and buts .. But basically for GE, less than 250k salary, tax at source.. Nothing to do ..
Above 250k and/or other stuff you need to declare, only then you need to do stuff.


Edit .. You can do a tax return yourself if you want, for example if you think you have paid too much.. Previous years too, doesn't need to be this year.

Thank you!
I've gone through my taxes for the year. And I have paid taxes of roughly 19% on imposition a la source. Used a "bareme" and plugged in my gross salary with my code of B2 (wife does not work + 2 kids) and it indicated I needed to have paid only 10%... Went on the "attestation quittance" from my employer and realised they did not incude my two kids.
Spent this evening doing the paper return to make sure I send it in by tomorrow so that they can give me some cash back. Crazy the amount of motivation I found to get this done this evening realising they'll be sending me some cash
Relieved I don't have to file a proper return this year - thank you for getting back to me so soon
