Tax burden


Tax burden in cantons and municipalities remains stable

On average in Switzerland, the cantons and municipalities are continuing to utilize around a quarter of their resource potential by means of taxes. Little has changed on the whole with respect to the cantonal differences. This is demonstrated by the fiscal capacity utilization index computed by the Federal Finance Administration (FFA). It indicates the average extent to which taxpayers are burdened by taxes levied by the cantons and municipalities.

The press release is available in French, German and Italian.
