here is the time of the declaration 2022 arrived : the first year that I can deduct child care expenses.
I was surprised that it was possible to deduct the costs of care by relatives (grandparents for example).
How to value these costs? given that in common sense, we do not pay our relatives for service rendered
You can check in your tax software from your Canton if there is a fixed price set up like for lunch outside of home and for commute worker If not, well, next time ask your relatives if you can pay them in order to deduct it from your taxes (it should cost you more than paying the taxes).
I believe this is new. I heard they’d been discussing it, but wasn’t aware some Cantons have started.
Do you have a source or example of what they allow you to deduct per day?
…and does this deduction need to appear “on the other side” as granny’s income?
As far as I understand it, it’s still about frais de garde, the cost of childcare.
So IMO even if the family members or close relatives are listed, when there are no costs, there won’t be anything to deduct.
