Re: Taxation at source -> how to change to a normal taxation

Did you invest in 3a? If not, and if you live in Zurich city, its probably going to be disadvantageous to submit a tax return given the high geminde tax rate.

If you did invest in 3a, then as you were only in Zurich for three months you would probably be saving tax unless you are a very high earner.

As Tom says you do not treated favourably for only having worked part of the year. Rather everything is done pro-rata (apart from the 3a - at least in Aargau, which is deducted in full even if you were not here the whole year).
Assume I earn 8'000 CHF a month and my Quellensteuer tariff is A0N. Then I pay 14.14% tax each month.

However, I was working in Switerland only 3 months in 2020, so my total gross income would be 24'000 CHF per year which would make the average tax rate just 9.2% for the canton Zurich.

Or did I make some mistake in my calculation?
