Switzerland needs a consistent taxation system



Rarely has an issue of such significance been put to the vote, while merely asking for the current situation to be maintained. The initiative "Yes to the protection of privacy", as well as its direct counter-proposal, aim to inscribe in the constitution the current law on tax offences. It is up to the Swiss people to determine the future of banking secrecy for Swiss residents. However, a refusal of the status quo would send a strong signal in favour of further weakening. In any case, Switzerland needs a consistent taxation system.
