In total, excluding indirect taxation on goods purchased (VAT) and alcohol, tobacco and petrol, you can reckon with two months salary. Taxes (apart from Federal tax) vary from canton to canton and the local government tax varies from Communauté to Communauté. If you are not a practising Christian or you're C of E, you might check if you are paying Church tax.

As you are obviously aware the systems are all different in each Kanton, but can I suggest that as as starting point, you go to and - they should give you a starting point. It'll take patience though ! But you will find the Swiss Authorities very helpful if you write direct to them. It does really sound like you may need a financial advisor for all that information and that will cost !!!! Forgot to say, for personal taxation Zug is the cheapest kanton !!!
