Hi there,

In Switzerland, the income of temporary residents is taxed at its source - meaning your taxes will be deducted directly from your income.

The tax deducted is made up of the average municipal taxes of all municipalities in a canton, plus cantonal and federal taxes.

You can find information about the withholding tax levied in the Canton of Vaud here:
