Tax deduction for travel-to-work costs ?

Hello,

Does anyone know if Kanton Schwyz allows to deduct travel-to-work costs e.g. SBB Abonnement and parking costs at the railway station ? I have not managed to find anything on sz.ch but it is most probably my poor German which makes it more difficult to find something on that matter !

Thanks for your help !

Re: Tax deduction for travel-to-work costs ?

Oh reading again the pdf - does this mean you can deduct parking and railway costs to get to work up to 20% of your salary (max 6,600) ? My employer gives me some transport allowance added to my salary - do I have to deduct that from the costs I have ? Thx again.

"Unmittelbare Berufsauslagen, die von Arbeitgeberseite nicht abgegolten werden, namentlich Aufwendungen für Berufswerkzeuge und Berufskleider, Fachliteratur, EDV-Hard- und Software, privates Arbeitszimmer und Schwerarbeit sowie für schwer nachweisbare Kleinauslagen wie Park- und Telefongebühren, können als Pauschalabzug wie folgt geltend gemacht werden:
20 % des durch Lohnausweis bestätigten Nettolohnes, maximal CHF 6'600.–;
Werden anstelle der Pauschalen höhere Berufskosten geltend gemacht, sind die tatsächlichen
Auslagen zu begründen und detailliert auszuweisen."
