The decision of the Federal Council of 13 March to withdraw the reservation to Art. 26 of the OECD Model Tax Convention in the double taxation agreement concluded by Switzerland, also has an impact on the tax policies of the cantons. The Federal Council thus took the decision in today's Federal Council Special Session, to involve the Conference of Cantonal Finance Directors (FDC), in Switzerland's work on international cooperation in tax issues. At the request of the FDC, it elected Dr. Jürg Altorfer, Adviser in Corporate Taxes at the Cantonal Tax Office in Zurich, forthwith as the delegate of the FDC to the Group of Experts "International Cooperation in Tax Issues".
The Group of Experts, chaired by Ambassador Manuel Sager, was appointed by the Federal Council on 6 March to support and advise the Federal Council Committee "International Administrative and Mutual Assistance" in dealing with questions on optimising cooperation in the case of fiscal offences.
