Anyone else enjoys doing their tax declaration? It’s such a fun exercise and eventually you get money back.
I’m aware that with todays’ interest rates it’s not optimal to overpay anymore in the first place.
Why the heck would anyone schedule a maintenance window for the tax software during lunch time, when I want to enter my deductions?
By the way, at least in ZH many deductions are applied automatically, but the 500 flat for Aus- und Weiterbildungskosten almost get me every year.They are not copied from last year, like other entries, either. Cheeky.
But only as of 2024, right? There was a brief period where the interests were quite generous.
It’s the coffee section, but I wanted to add some potentially helpful. Seems this 500 Srf. deduction is a Zurich thing (“Im Kanton Zürich werden bis CHF 500 ohne Belegnachweis akzeptiert” in your linked document).
In ZH, the standard deductions are automatically applied, like 3% for work related expenses.But this one, you need to actively add.
After 3 years, I am quicker and getting better at it.
However, I hate the fact that I can’t reuse the .tax file of the previous year on Geneva GeTax software.
I always start from an empty file entering all bank accounts and broker accounts.
Anyone has a better way of doing it ?
