Re: Deductions requested without signing contract

As said there is normally also a 5% tax at source part which has to be paid.
I disagree with this part.

It is true only if the employer chose the so-called (and I say so-called because I believe it to be a misnomer) "Vereinfachtes Abrechnungsverfahren".

As I see it, for an employer, it is less work not to be bothered, at all, with Quellensteuer. It's just one more administrative step, and that takes time and effort, and time is money. This is one of the reasons why so many jobs are advertised as being for people who are "CH or C" only.

This particular employee has a C-permit and therefore deals with her own tax and tax form.

Even so, OP, aSwissInTheUS is correct that an employer may choose this route, and so you should check the paperwork so you understand what has been deducted. If the employer did choose the "Vereinfachtes Abrechnungsverfahren", then your wife, too, will have to deal with the extra administrative step when you and she fill out your tax form.
