Stupidly low tax

Got my third month with Quellensteuer at 4.5%. Has anyone else experienced this? I guess I should speak to HR, else I'll get a large tax bill at the end of the year...

As a property owner with loads of deductions, & having an accountacy background I would assume you would understand the cash flow advantage that your getting, soon you will have a C permit & have no choice in the matter. Enjoy your temporary benefit!

Skip one evening a week fine dining and put this money in a savings account, then you're covered if you get a bill - if not .... Happy Christmas.

The way it works, if not C permit holder, is that the company is guaranteeing your tax liability with the canton. That's how HR explained to me.
