Anyone who pays Withholding tax trying to claim back Verrechnungssteuer here?

Hello everyone,

is there anybody here who pays Quellensteuer but trying to claim back Verrechnungssteuer? I was expecting a simple form, but it came with 4 pages which include things like global income, properties etc. I thought to just forward them the bank statement and claim back the Verrechnungssteuer as it was from the interest of my saving here from work. While the amount is not really big, I am seriously considering whether the effort is worth as normally as withholding tax payer we don't need to do any declaration. Am I now asking for trouble just for the sake of tiny Verrechnungssteuer??

Thanks for the sharing of info.

Dear jttraveller,

Life would have been much simple would it have been the process. It takes long time and plus if you are expats working in ch and you want to claim other expenses there are many forms and supporting docs which you will need to submit.

Some canton have online apps but not sure if your canton have one.

Atleast I had to follow this process and got some tax back.

But at last it depends on Canton as every canton have their own TAX dept.

Stumbled upon this thread while I am researching about verrechnungssteuer and wealth tax. I am wondering if it is worth at all as one would then subject to wealth tax if one submits the bank account statement? Assuming one has exceeded the miminum threshold of course.

I mean what is actually the catch here with the wealth tax consideration as one does not need to fill in (simplified) tax return usually if one earns less than 120k CHF or has non-C permit?
