I don't know about taxes but when it comes to bills your chances to win at the end of the day are very slim The complete guide to bills and what happens if you don't pay them.

Re: wht happens if I stop to pay taxes?

There is another thread, which discusses what happens when bills are not paid.

We look forward to your experience in not paying taxes. Maybe we can also benefit from your tips.

Re: wht happens if I stop to pay taxes?

actually, from experience*, it takes them about 6 months to slap the Betreibung on you. Even if you pay, it sticks.

Zurich might be slower but be prepared to run, hide, never move again and never get any credit.

My mate's experience*

My mate also had that experience. Once paid, the betreibung can eventually be removed from your record. At least my mate's was.

@Boxman: It's good to see that your mate has access to the internet from prison. Things must have improved since the old days.*

*According to stories I heard from the mate of a mate.

The law permits the claimant to immediately issue a Betreibung, even without a reminder. A business might wait patiently, hoping to retain the customer and future sales. But this claimant might not care to be conciliatory.

The claimant may be friendly and agree to retract the Betreibung. Otherwise, the defaulter must sue the claimant for deletion. That case can drag on for years, if the claimant is obstinate.

oh my <cough> mate <cough> got probably a 1st and 2nd warning. He also claims to not care about this blemish on his debt record as it seems to not have any effect....it was paid off immediately.

This was an issue my mate had with the tax authorities, I guess if you pay up right away they'll take it off if you ask nicely.

Re: wht happens if I stop to pay taxes?

can I add that my mate is the same mate who downloads stuff off the Internet? He's probably not such an honest guy when all things are considered

Re: wht happens if I stop to pay taxes?

Thanks guys.. at least I learned a new word today.. "Betreibung"

* I never had the intention to really do that, even because taxes are no more than 15% of my annual earnings.. 15% will not save my old days.. but when this crazy escapist toughs pass through my mind it is very nice to have a forum to talk about ...

* Brazil is easier: the taxes are so higher (3x more than here) and the society is so corrupt that if you ask your employer to pay your salary without any official registration, he will do that ... both of you will save money and loose "rights" that you will never use anyway at least here the billionaire taxes are convertible in good education, good transportation and safety

Re: what happens if I stop paying taxes?

If you stop to pay taxes, they will gladly leave the window open to take your money. But if you stop paying taxes, some folk will get kind of angry 'coz the taxes here are so low compared to those of many countries.
