Cantonal property gains tax calculator

Depending on the canton, the property gains tax can also be calculated by the tax office:

  • Pre-assessment based on the notification from the land registry: this calculation is received in writing, sometimes only on request and in some cantons subject to a charge (for example, in the canton of Bern this simple pre-calculation costs CHF 100). In all cases, this is an approximate calculation based on the information received by the tax office. The disadvantage is that these calculations are only carried out after the sale and certain optimizations are no longer possible.
  • Some cantons offer an online calculator to make it easier to calculate tax rates. In the canton of Zurich, a pdf form is provided for the calculation. This is valid for the city of Zurich and the entire canton and also serves as a tax return for filing. It must be printed out and signed. Further calculations such as the deferral of property gains tax are not carried out.
