Kanton Schwyz – Quellensteuertarif in excel form

Some things are so simple and so useful, that not seeing them being done drives me crazy.

One such thing is the Withholding Tax (Quellensteuer) tarifs in Switzerland. Every canton publishes them, as of course they must. But it’s only in PDF form. Sure, that’s useful too… if you don’t want to do actual work.

So I’ve downloaded the pdf for Kanton Schwyz, where I live, and via the magic of Notepad++ and regular expressions I’ve converted it into a spreadsheet with two sheets, with and without church tax (Kirchensteuer). Of course, they are given without any warranty, I’m not responsible for errors, if you go bankrupt it’s your own fault etc etc.

One thing to note is that columns D,F and the rest with the % header are percentages. So 0.21 means 0.21%, not 21%.

I hope you find that useful. I’ll be posting the new ones for 2014, 2015 and so on. If you find any error or anything that can be improved (without too much work :-)), please let me know.
