This is my first post, I’m not living in Switzerland yet, but I’ve received a job offer today, and when I told them it was too low, the guy answered that I need to take into account the low taxes in the country. He says he only pays 15% of his salary in taxes.
I didn’t know what to answer to that, it seems to me too low. I previously used this tax calculator: 105000 income tax calculator 2021 - Basel-Stadt - salary after tax which says for 105k it is around 30%.
But then, having a look at the pinned post, there is another calculator: Cookie Not accepted
This one says I would pay 17% of taxes, which is more similar to what the interviewer was saying (but still looks too good to be true)
I don’t need an exact number, just an approximation because I’m comparing between this job in Switzerland, and a remote job around Europe.
Could anybody help me? Some data:
- The job is in Basel.
- I’m single, no kids, no religion, 30 years old
