Zurich has announced an annual tax cut of roughly CHF15 from 2022. What do you plan to do with this newfound windfall?

n mid-December, residents of Switzerland’s largest canton rejoiced when they received word Zurich authorities would be implementing the first tax cut for 18 years. 

In passing the welcome tax relief, Zurich authorities said they wanted to “give something back to the population during the pandemic”. 

The thrill for Zurich residents was however relatively short-lived, when it became known that the tax relief would be CHF15 per person on average. 

Nowhere in Switzerland is particularly cheap, but Zurich prices are among the highest, meaning that your CHF15 isn’t likely to go so far. 

In fact, it would probably only get you a slice of watermelon, as we covered in this story from August.
