As far as I know there is no common tax law between Germany, Austria
and Swizerland, which would be the prerequisite for such a thing.

I'm not so sure of that - this is going into the wrong direction
(isolation instead of cooperation). There will be several people
speaking German and they will be speaking German with their national
people/representatives just as the French representatives will be
speaking French with their folks or the Swedish will be speaking their
language. This has been one of the reasons why there will be a local
chapter in every country.
