How does taxation work for a border crosser from Germany?

Hello all,

I am an engineer and I have been offered a job from a company in Zürich. Since my wife will study in Konstanz, Germany, we are thinking to live in Konstanz. In that case, I will be traveling to Zürich(Oerlikon) everyday. The company offered me approx. 100K CHF/per year. As far as I read in this forum, I have to pay Quellensteuer in Switzerland which is 4.5%. Is this the only tax that I have to pay in CH? What about AHV (Alters- und Hinterlassenenversicherung) or Pensionkasse?

If I keep the German Health Insurance how much do I need to pay approx. for me and my wife ( she is not working)? Is this amount can be deducted from taxation?

How much income tax do I have to pay in Germany?
In short, can someone tell me how much money I will be making in a year approximately (netto)?

Note: I am not a EU citizen.

Thank you very much for your help in advance.
Best regards,
