Many cantons have extended their filing deadlines in recognition of the challenges faced by taxpayers due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The ordinary deadline for filing tax returns is set for most cantons on or around 31 March.
What has changed?
Many cantonal tax authorities have extended the ordinary tax filing deadline in recognition of the challenges faced by taxpayers due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
We have been closely monitoring announcements by cantonal tax authorities and have put together a list of cantons who have either publicly or informally communicated their current position (as of 25 March).
If not specified otherwise, the following is only valid for tax return filings and not for withholding tax corrections.
We are glad to see the authorities have taken this step in order to support the taxpayers in this extraordinary situation.
