Is it free?

When will it be ready?
Once the various ETFs (Funds) that you are invested in will report the annual return data to the authorities (ESTV), Selma can generate your tax report.
This typically happens by the beginning of March which leaves you plenty of room to report your taxes on time.
How can I get it?
You will get an email as soon as it is ready. You can then simply download the report in your Selma web app, under the "Documents" tab on your "Bank accounts" page.
How to fill out the tax declaration
This is how you add your Selma tax report info to your tax declaration form. You need to declare your Selma tax report in the form "Wertschriften- und Guthabenverzeichnis" of your tax declaration. There you have to select an account type/statement category, these are called slightly differently in each canton. For the Selma tax report, please select one of the following options, or something similar:
- Tax statement
- Depot statement
- Tax-assessed depot statement
- Tax register
As an example, let's look at the 2019 version of Selma's tax report. The most important information first: You do not need to transfer all the data provided Selma's tax report to your "Wertschriften- und Guthabenverzeichnis", you only need to transfer one row, the one on the top. 👍

As mentioned, Selma as your wealth manager (or investment assistant) also falls into this category. Read here more about it.
