Rental value for taxes on house purchase

Hi guys,

I could not find a corresponding old thread therefore I hope a new one.
I am thinking about buying an apartment in Zurich but I am stuck with the evaluation of the taxes

Does anybody have any experience with the calculation of the rental value (Eigenmietwerte) that should increase my taxable income? I have understood is a 2.5%/3.5% applied over 80% of the house purchase value but I am not sure it is correct.

When calculating the asset value, should I consider 80% of the house purchase value or the full amount?

Thanks guys!

Darione

You don't provide the value, the commute will. It's then usually discounted if you live in the property.

It's not very disturbing and makes little difference to your taxes.

Thanks! Do you know if there is any rule of thumb?
I know the Gemeinde should give the value but at least I wanted to get a feeling on the rental value to increase my taxable income.
On the asset value, you are right. It should not make a big difference...

They calculate it when it's built and will revisit the evaluation if you do significant modifications.it varies from commune to commune.
