When are you considered a Grenzgangern

Just started a new job in Zurich, and I live in France near Basel. I commute everyday, and am a frontalier on a G permit. I used to pay tax in France when working in Basel, and I am now aware that I have to pay tax in Zurich, fine. However now that my I have my first pay slip the payroll lady is saying that I am not considered a Grenzgangern as my commute is too far......??. She has set my tax percentage at 5.75% for now. I am also a single parent.

I am totally lost with it all. Anyone able to shed some light on this.

your employer is right.

France is not mentioned here.

perhaps you need to change to an L permit?
best is to contact the cantonal tax office.

Translation for those who don't read German.

The following people are not classed as frontalier and are subject to normal taxes:
People working in other cantons (such as Zurich or Aargau)
