Federal Council adopts benchmarks for individual taxation

With the introduction of individual taxation, in future mainly married couples with an equal distribution of income and pensioner couples will be relieved.


At its meeting on May 25, 2022, the Federal Council approved the key parameters for individual taxation. The consultation is planned for the fall of 2022. With individual taxation, the majority of individuals should be relieved of the burden of direct federal tax.


In the future, the income and assets of married couples will be divided among the partners according to their civil circumstances. By submitting two separate tax returns, they will be taxed in the same way as cohabiting couples.
