Awww! Poor poor riches!

Post by darwin dali »

Foreign Swiss residents including Michael Schumacher, Bernie Ecclestone and Fernando Alonso pay a comparatively paltry lump-sum of about $60,000 per year in tax to their local region.

Elsewhere, in Germany or France for example, income tax could cost them up to ten times as much or more.

Swiss finance ministers, however, reportedly met last Friday and discussed possibly changing the system within six months.

It could result in F1's Swiss-based multi-millionaires having to pay twice as much.

F1's David Coulthard, Kimi Raikkonen, Nick Heidfeld, Jarno Trulli, Jacques Villeneuve and Alain Prost also live in Switzerland.

Dubai? No booze? Women in beekeeper suits? No way!
Monaco? Sure, if you can afford it. There's only that much space for housing in 1.95 square kilometers. But the perks are perky for sure :D
