I’ll start apologising if this has been answered before, I have used the search function and read all relative existing topics about it, but somehow I can’t say I understand yet.
I live in Basel-stadt, I have a B permit and earn less than 120k CHF per year. As such, my employer takes care of my income taxes and since I started investing that was that. Now I have a small amount (<20k) invested in ETFs with DEGIRO, which pays some dividends. I have filed the W8-BEN on the DEGIRO, and therefore I pay 15% on them, directly deducted from DEGIRO.
My question is if I still have to declare these dividends to the swiss authority, and if so any advice on how to proceed would be great. I have tried navigating through the websites and forms but my inexperience with the topic and my very limited german did not help. At the moment I am mostly interested in not evading taxes, more than having anything reimbursed since we are talking about a tiny tiny amount.
From this post from hedgehog in a similar thread I seem to understand I don’t have to do anything: here
However, my wife is also employed and also earns <120K CHF per year, and therefore also taxed at the source. Our shared income is however > 120k. Does this impact the situation at all?
Thanks for any help and again sorry for the repeated question.
