If you are a modern nomad and live internationally, you might have already asked yourself this question.
The answer is rather simple: if you generate income in Switzerland, this income becomes taxable in Switzerland. This even applies to artists with just one gig as well as seasonal contractors. The same income might be relevant in the country of your tax domicile, which may be anywhere.
Whether your tax domicile is in Switzerland depends on the question of the applicable double tax treaty, where you have the center of your life and where you spend more than a certain number of days per year.
In case your situation is complex, it makes sense to get to the bottom of the question.
