I’m a bit surprised to see that so many people here in this forum live basically in tax hells.
First thing I did when I realised that I should probably change my spending habits and take better care of my money, is moving to another canton where I cut my taxes and health insurance costs into half, saving a 5 figures sum per year.
Especially for people who work remotely and basically can work wherever they want it is really worth it. Personally I work in the City of Zurich so I moved to a near canton where it’s still possible to commute and negotiated 2-3 home office days per week. Before, I also lived in Zurich City and thought that tax regime is already terrible but when I look at Bern or other high tax cantons, the situation is even much worse.
