What is quasi-resident status?

  • Taxpayers taxed at source ( cross-border workers and B permit holders) can, since the decision of the Federal Court of 26 January 2010, request the inclusion of effective expenses in the calculation of their taxes provided that 90% of the household income comes from Switzerland.
  • Since 1 January 2017, following a ruling of the Swiss Constitutional Chamber of the Court of Justice, the amount of deductions related to quasi-resident status has been reduced. The cantonal limit on the deduction of travel expenses is now set at CHF 500.
  • Despite this limitation, the quasi-resident status remains potentially interesting for the taxpayers concerned. But beware, it must be checked every year.
  • Having quasi-resident status does not mean that it is more attractive for the persons concerned. Again, it is essential to have a professional check.
