Income taxes for married couples vs cohabiting couples
 
Hello,

I've been playing with the Credit Suisse & Comparis tax calculators to simulate what would happen to our taxes if my GF & I were to marry. The result isn't pretty, as we'd pay about CHF 10'000 more of taxes per year. (Just the two of us, no kids)

I understood that the law was changing regarding married couples taxes, for example here it is stated that :

Quote:

In terms of individuals, the penalty for married couples was largely removed, or at least considerably reduced, as of 1 January 2008 (discrimination against dual income married couples compared to cohabiting couples).
Are the calculators not yet updated to reflect this ? Or has the law not yet been changed ?

Any info on if and when this will change ?

Some further relief may come in 2010. Still in the parliamentary process. However, high income couples would almost not see a difference.

Canton Vaud has tax software available. Would be authoritative.
