I will soon have to submit the ordinary declaration in Geneva. Maybe you can offer me some help
Federal tax being relatively low, I will focus here on ICC deductions.
I pay the cheapest Assura, that’s 3829.20 francs.
I would like to know if I can deduct the standard 5777 francs that’s deducted for people taxed at source, or if I need to stick to the sum I paid (page 37).
It seems that AFC changed its mind recently, and that we cannot claim remote work expenses (mostly the rental of a dedicated room). Did any of you succeed in claiming such deductions?
A treacherous word was added to the remote work definition. It’s not on GeTax guide, but in the e-mail they sent afterwards.
Sous l’angle fiscal, le télétravail se définit comme l’occupation durable
d’une pièce uniquement dédiée à l’activité professionnelle.
It’s a bit annoying, when you see that Kanton Bern gives many details on how to deduct such expenses.
- Transportation and lunch
Fine, let’s suppose that we can’t claim remote work expenses. Let’s claim transport and lunch then.
But I live less than 30mn from my office. Does that mean that I’d be better off if I stick to the standard deduction of 3% and 1697 francs maximum?
Les frais de repas (15.- par jour, max. 3’200.- par an) ne sont admis que
si, pour le contribuable salarié, l’utilisation des transports publics pour
se rendre de son domicile à son lieu de travail et en revenir aboutit à
une durée excédant deux heures par jour.
- Wealth management fees:
Ist there a standard deduction in Geneva as well, like the 298 francs that our host deducts?
Thanks for your help
