If you live in Switzerland and earn under CHF120,000 a year (Geneva's figure is CHF500,000 iirc) then you don't fill in a tax return but are subject to withholding tax from your gross monthly salary figure along with other deductions for pension, etc.
Foreign employees with additional sources of income or additional assets are also obliged to file a return, even if they earn less than 500k in Geneva.

Re: EU citizen living in France working in Geneva

Welcome Stexit, a veritable visitor from Verulamium (now known as St. Albans)! For the unitiated, in Roman times, Verulamium was a major town on the old Roman Road of Watling Street to the North, and where the first draft of Magna Carta was drawn up. It's cathedral is just magnificent. Look up details on the Web!


Taxes? Well put it his way Stexit, you end up paying a fortune whichever option you chose. But one thing is certain, Verulamium's Cathedral is much more impressive than anything Geneva can offer!

You don't mean those nasty things sticking up out of the valleys, covered in rocks in summer and snow in winter? If anyone persuades you to hike up one, you get to the top, dripping with sweat, thirsty and exhausted, and find the restaurant which the Swiss so often manage to balance on the only bit of flat area at the summit, full of fresh and cheerful visitors who came up on the chair lift, mountain railway, or funicular which the Swiss also built hidden round the back of the mountain where you didn't see it beforehand.

P.S.I like St. Albans too.

Less nasty in Geneva, our mountains are more worn than those 'up north".
Plus the restaurant on top of our nearest mountain is actually in France, as is the mountain... and the telepherique that goes up it. My OH refers to it The restaurant At The End of The Universe; Douglas Adams fans will get the reference.

PS; my best friend from school lives in St Albans, lovely place.

I beg to differ. If a Geneva frontalier does not want quasi-resident status, to claim some rebate or other, then they do not have to fill in a Swiss tax form. Unearned income is dealt with by the French tax authorities. They just fill in a form to determine which income tax bracket (barème) they will fall into.

Re: EU citizen living in France working in Geneva

Can I check, if you live in France but work in Geneva on a G permit, do you pay tax based on the location of your office in Geneva?

No, workplace location in Geneva has no effect on the tax paid by a frontalier.

If you mean "do I pay income tax in Geneva because that's where I work" then yes, you'll be taxed at source. The swiss then pass a percentage of this along to the french commune where you're resident.
You'll also be asked to fill in a french tax form annually (at least my OH was when he was still gainfully employed in Geneva).
