In the last blogpost, we filled the first three parts of our Swiss tax declaration (for the Canton of Vaud), namely: Personal Data, Income, and Professional Fees.
Next, let's dive into the Wealth, Real Estate, and Debts.
Step 5: Wealth
Step 6: Real Estate
In this blogpost serie, I will play the tenant role. For all the home owners amongst the readers: don't worry, there will be a dedicated article about real estates taxes. Stay tuned.
Step 7: Debts
Here you can claim debt, leasing, or mortgage. For the latter, it will be included in the article referenced in the previous paragraph. For the two others: go fix this debt now so you don't need to bother with this section next year!
Some additional information about the numbers on the screenshot:
- Point 1: this is where we will deduct your mortgage in the home owner taxes' future article
- Point 2: if you have a leasing or credit card debt (although that's forbidden on the MP blog!), you can input these things in here
- Point 3: in case you have securities that had negative interests, you can declare them as well
Again, three more steps that were relatively easy — moreover as a tenant.
In the next blogpost, it will be more interesting with the categories Status of Securities, Deductions, and Other Informations.
Depending on how many screenshots I will end up with, I may add a fourth article for the Summary and Sending parts.
And if I missed some tax savings tips on the screenshots above, please let me know in the comments section below!
