Tax burden in cantons and municipalities down somewhat again


On average in Switzerland, the cantons and municipalities utilize around a quarter of their resource potential by means of taxes. For almost 60% of the cantons, the tax burden has fallen relative to the last reference year. This is demonstrated by the 2022 fiscal capacity utilization index computed by the Federal Finance Administration (FFA). It has decreased for the eighth year in a row.

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