These tax tricks won't put you in jail.


These tax tricks won't put you in jail.

You know that envelope with the cantonal emblem on it that reliably flutters into your mailbox at the beginning of the year? A few payment slips are inside, and in officialese it says that you can use it to pay your tax bill.

Unfortunately, we can't perform magic and make these bills disappear. Likewise, it doesn't help much if you ignore these payment slips. The final bill will come at some point and you might not want to pay the interest on late payments as well.

  • At least we can help you so that the bill is not so high. There are many - also legal - ways how you can save taxes. Here are a few examples:
  • Contributions to pillar 3a can be deducted from your income up to the maximum amount of CHF 7,056 (for employees) or CHF 35,280 (for self-employed persons without a pension fund).
  • Voluntary payments into the pension fund are also deductible.
  • Certain insurance contributions (for example for AHV), further education costs or public transport or bicycle costs for the way to work can also be deducted from taxes.
  • Do you have a big heart? Then donate and be doubly happy. Because these contributions are also deductible.

If you have read this far, you probably want to know more. Then you should ask us for advice. Because taxes are like love: it quickly becomes personal and sometimes very complicated. We know the law and can tell you if, how, how much and why. 

Since we don't come to your home, you don't have to offer us coffee, you don't have to clean your apartment and you can keep your pajamas on. At the most, you will need an hour of your time. You'll thank us next year when the tax bill arrives in your mailbox. Just contact broker@caveo.ch.
