I am filling out my Swiss tax returns and it asks me if I have made any payments to the pillar 2.

My question is: Do I enter all contributions which my employer and I have made to my pension fund, or just possible extra, voluntary contributions I have made?

Hi there,

The full amount of money contributed to your occupational pension fund (2a) must be entered, including the portion of contributions covered by your employer.

The amount contributed affects the maximum flat deduction for insurance premiums, among other things.
