Living/working in different cantons and having to pay double tax

This is my first post here, so hello everyone!

I have a question because I am in a difficult situation. I am on a B permit, so sourced at tax. I live in a different canton from where I work, so I think my employer pays the tax in their canton (Zurich), which then has to transfer the money to mine.

The problem is that my canton & gemeinde have not received the money still, so they both sent me bills which I had to pay in the end because deadlines were approaching. They told me they understood the situation and that Zurich often does that because they are busy, but I had to pay the taxes before the deadline nonetheless otherwise I would be fined. They would then refund me the taxes once they received the money from Zurich.

Now it's been a month, and I still have not received a refund. So Zurich has been holding money which isn't theirs for over 7 months now.

Is there anything I can do about this?
