Tax on rent paid by employer

Is the housing rent paid by the employer taxed as ordinary income in Switzerland? Thanks.

I would say so. So would be employer-paid private school for your kids and several other similar benefits.

Re: Tax on rent paid by employer

This is different by Canton & employer but sometimes if your employers has an agreement with the tax authorities and says you are coming here as an expat there can be an exemption for the first few years at least whilst you are on not on a C permit. May only be bigger employers who do this (and of course it may no longer be available due to the changes in the political climate). I would suggest you talk to the employer first to see if they have something in place with the Canton.
