The Swiss FDEA releases data on lump-sum taxation

The Contribution Division of the Federal department of Economic Affairs (FDEA) has released data  relating to those individuals that have chosen taxation according to worldwide living expenditure (also called lump-sum or global taxation) in Canton Ticino.

This survey, carried out every two years, monitors the number of individuals and the total tax revenue among cantonal, municipal and federal taxes.

According to the study, as of December 31, 2016, Ticino counted 910  lump-sum tax payers with tax revenues amounting to CHF 118 million, as of December 31, 2018 842 individuals with tax revenues amounting to CHF 143.2 million, and as of December 31, 2020 896 individuals with tax revenues amounting to CHF 157.8 million.

The last two years have therefore shown an increase in revenues and in the number of cases that may have been influenced by the Covid-19 pandemic, but the DFE says that future trends are still difficult to identify.
