By when will we have to pay in tax we underpaid for 2008

Hello

Not sure who can help.

Our tax advisor made a mistake with our tax calculation and now we have underpaid tax by quite a bit for 2008. We have submitted our tax return on 31 March 09 - how long will it take till we get a bill for 2008 for the amount we underpaid....

Just need to budget for when the BIG bill will come? Next month? Next year?

Thanks!

Tanya,

Every Kanton is different, but it will probably take 1-2 months to process. You then normally have 30 days to pay. If you cannot pay it all then get your accountant to strike a deal with the tax authorities, ie over a number of months.

why not pre-pay and get interest on your payments paid back to you!

Swiss Tax for Dumbies?

re length of time: 2-3 months seems very optimistic. in my experience it has taken up to a year and more to have your tax return processed and rebate/bill sent out, VD & ZRH! Smaller cantons may process quicker, but even so ....

I received my 2007 demand yesterday, Kanton Zurich. Am not sure why but in past years, they seem to "stack 'em up" and I've received the two previous year's very close together. Bet the 2008 one is there when I get home now

Simple returns are decided quickly and processed at the Gemeinde. Complex returns are sent to specialists at the Canton. They have backlogs. Once the specialist decides, you get an assessment. Subsequent years are processed based on the decision of the prior year, if the situation is unchanged.
