Taxe sur les dechetes?

Anyone know if this communal tax is deductible from our Taxes in Vaud.

Re: Taxe sur les dechetes?

Short answer is "yes".
Longer answer, under item 540 of the declaration.

Re: Taxe sur les dechetes?

As a little postscript on this, the actual charge is decided by each commune. Our commune, Mies, fixed it at 99.90 CHF, so that it was a charge (un émolument) and not a tax and was therefore payable by all the CDs and similar who live in the commune and don't pay taxes otherwise.

We have both.
The annual rubbish tax bill decreased significantly when the taxed bag system was introduced but we still have the annual fee.
Having said that we pay much less now with the fee and bags combined than we did before they changed the system.

Re: Taxe sur les dechetes?

Yes, same Canton, different systems. We pay a very low basic rate, then we have no official pay-sacks but pay by weight. As we avoid most packaging, and recycle everything + compost most of the rest- we pay much less than we used to before. A lot of people moaned at the beginning of this 'pay by weight'- but it is working well now. Only big issue is throw away nappies as they get so heavy- so many mums have switched to modern washable nappies with inner liner.

We have an electronic card from the Commune- use it to open the mollok container, put bag in on special weighing platform, and the weight is recorded on the card. Close the lid, and bag drops.
