This shows you the approximate tax burden (without deductions).
I pay tax at source, do I also have to fill in the Zug tax return?
Only as long as the earned income of one person exceeds CHF 120,000.
The same applies to married couples: One person must earn more than CHF 120,000 (salaries are not added together).
If this amount is exceeded, the 2021 tax return in Zug is mandatory.
Which home office tax deductions am I allowed to make?
Some years like 2020 or 2021 are special. Many went about their business from home and other things occured. This has significant implications for the tax return.
Am I allowed to deduct my home office from tax?
Yes. However, certain factors must be met in order for the rental costs to be credited on a pro-rata basis.
Firstly, a substantial part of the workload must take place at home. A substantial part is 40% or 2 out of 5 working days.
The study must also be usable exclusively as a study. There must not be a bed or sofa bed in it, as the tax office could otherwise regard it as a multifunctional room.
By the way: If you want to deduct the study from your tax, you cannot claim a flat-rate allowance for professional expenses. Travel costs and public transport subscriptions are then also no longer deductible.
You have to weigh up what would be more attractive from a tax point of view and decide on a variant.
