It looks like you definitely have grounds for a refund ... sure, it's only CHF 26, but you could almost buy a cup of coffee with that.
...or an average size lunch... where do you buy your coffee from Mod?!
anywhoo, I am practically not even considering the chances of a refund... even if I would, I wouldn't know how to go about getting the refund...

Re: Free to change address for permit holder of card format!

oh well, now that you had my attention, I sent an email to the Gemeinde asking whether the bill was sent in error or the website was displaying incorrect information... and they clarified, very politely indeed, that the website information was erroneous, and this service was free only for Swiss nationals, whereas for foreigners it is 26CHF for adults and 12.50CHF for children... they even thanked me for bringing this to their notice and apologized profusely for the error...

so I guess this sorts it all out... I'd say, even though I didn't benefit in any way from this query, I'm sort of impressed...

If you just have to change an address within a kreis,no fees has to be paid. But ,if the new address is in another stadt,then they charge you 25 CHF and if the new address in in another canton, they will charge you 85 chf.

Is that info officially on the web somewhere? I also thought so, BUT...
I got an address change 2 days ago. My new address falls in the same kreisburo (Kreis 6, Zurich) but they still charged me 25 Fr.
When I asked why and they told me, Every address change => 25 Fr., doesn't matter if it is the same kreis...!

I know that a friend of mine didn't have to pay anything when he changed his address last month (not kreis 6 though) !!

I was charged the 25 CHF as well so I think it is still the same now as in 2010

I paid 25chf for changing address.... I had a card format of permit... But they will give a paper indicating your living address...this is where the fee comes from.
