I have been a loyal reader of the forum for quite a while, but it took me until now to sign up…I know, shame on me;-)
Promise that I will do a proper introduction of me soon.
What I wanted to ask the community is the following:
This week I started with my 2019 tax return and I have one complication.
I got married in 2019, so I need to include my wife and do a combined tax return.
However, my wife was working and living in Spain throughout the whole 2019 (she only recently moved to Switzerland).
She therefore paid her taxes already in Spain in 2019.
If I include now her income from Spain into our 2019 tax statements, this results that we would be taxed twice (once in Spain on her income and once again here in CH).
Does anyone have any experiences on how to avoid that or is it just as it is? This would seem to me not very fair to be honest…
I will of course get in touch with a tax consultant, however, I wanted to drop the question here to the community as perhaps someone had a similar case and can help.
Thanks in advance and looking forward to more conversations.
