Tax for leavers

Hi All,

I saw many questions already on Tax returns but im not sure it applies to me so perhaps somebody might know.

I have worked in switzerland for several years and paid standard tax through my employer/wages.

How do I know if im due for a tax rebate since I will be leaving switzerland in 2 weeks. Is informing the commune that I leave sufficient for them to tell the authorities/tax people I have left and update my new address so if i am in line for any rebate they send to my new address ?

Thanks

For this year, you will not owe any money in Switzerland since you
have worked less than 180 days.

Your Gemeinde( Community ) will check to see if you owe money
for past years taxes when you announce your departure.

What about if I have overpaid tax ? will they send to you or put directly into your account of something ?.

I already registered departure with commune and all the lady asked was for me to fill in a form stating date of departure and my new address in the UK.

You could give tax power of attorney to a local accountant who will handle all tax matters.

You will just give them your bank details, and they will send the money.

I would give a local bank, and then close the account after you
receive the remaining payment.
