Cantonal Tax map

Hi,

Re: Cantonal Tax map

Have you tried googling/duckduckgoing switzerland tax map?

Anyway, tax isn't the only factor to consider. Low tax places may have higher rental costs, higher charges on local services like refuse collection etc.

Higher rent will be the major added cost. Also if you're based in Zug/Schwyz, you're unlikely to be nipping off to Germany for a cheap cheeky weekly supermarket shop.

Health insurance changes too - I saved @100chf/month (like for like) per person when moving...

Car insurance stayed similarlish (change of 50chf/year on a 600chf/year insurance).

What I’m looking to calculate cost of buying a property in one canton vs other. If one steps outside Zug, can save 1m. It seems that Uri/Schwyz if you compare real estate prices vs Zug is much better option. The tax saving kicks in only on really big sums of CHF…

You can‘t compare cantons if you are looking for tax savings. The tax saving in Schwyz only really kicks in in the three Gemeinden which make up Bezirk Höfe: Freienbach, Wollerau and Feusisberg-Schindellegi and to a lesser extent Altendorf and Lachen in March. It also depends on your family situation. We pay less tax as singles with no kids in Freienbach than we would anywhere in Zug, however our friends who are married with a child see the opposite. The tax range in Zurich canton is massive too. If the income tax saving I make living in Freienbach vs. Rüschlikon is x then the saving vs. Zurich city is 2.5x. Then there is wealth tax, lower health and other insurance premiums etc.

I guess it depends what you call really big sums of CHF…

A lot of other factors other than tax are influencing those prices. Uri doesn't even border on Zug.

There was a new apartment development located close to Walchwil (Zug), but just over border in Arth-Goldau Gemeinde (Schwyz). Prices there were a step down from what you would expect in Walchwil proper, can't remember how much. Aside from tax, I suppose major difference to Zug would be school.

If family situation is married and two children and even over CHF 1m/year it’s not worth buying in Zug vs Schwyz if you take property into consideration at least 150m sq/m with 3/4 bedrooms. Also another issue, there is no supply at all and old buildings don’t want to risk had enough experience in UK..

For example some areas like Reichenburg, Tuggen l, Wangen are so cheap relatively and still very attractive tax rates.

Nop, the last part if municipalities.


No, a basic calc family making CHf300k makes sense to go to lower taxes cantons while even making CHf1m doesn’t make sense buying in Zug.

Rather simple top end in Zug 24% but more like 20% as over 7digits you dont do salary anyway and Schwyz is maybe 2/4% more. So that’s 20/40k saving this is very rough. While property price drops well over 7digits. Over 10 years 200/400k. House appreciation is another totally separate topic to consider. Insurances etc are minor costs.

Re: Cantonal Tax map

So you're saying because someone earning a million/pa only saves 20-40K by living in Zug vs Schwyz, it isn't justified because property prices are so much cheaper in Schwyz.

I'm not sure it's true though that real estate is such a Schnäppchen in the lowest-tax areas of Schwyz relative to Zug.
