Reimbursement of withholding taxes on investment income

I'm hoping someone could answer the following question. I've tried searching through the forum, but no luck.

If one pays Quellensteuer, is there a way to have reimbursed (at least partly) withholding taxes on investment income, e.g., interest on savings accounts? I read somewhere that this should be possible by filling out a form from the tax office, but I haven't been able to find anything.

I know that if I fill out a complete tax return I can have the amount withheld credited, but is there some other way? I'm thinking of a similar situation in which contributions to Pillar 3a are taken into consideration for a partial reimbursement of Quellensteuer by filling out a special form.

Re: Reimbursement of withholding taxes on investment income

When I changed from Quellensteuer to declaraing my taxes I got a reimbursement.
I was informed that if I thought I was paying too much I could at any stage decide to file my own taxes even though I was on Quellensteuer.

I am not an accountant but there are a few here,who can confirm to deny my info.

I will admit when I moved from Quellensteuer I was lazy and found a really nice accountant via EF

Re: Reimbursement of withholding taxes on investment income

Thanks for the info. Actually, I wanted to avoid doing a full declaration because it turns out I'll be owing taxes if I do. I suppose there's no way around it then.
