Confused on my Salary - please help - My deductions confused me :(

Hi guys, I'm confused if the deductions from my salary are normal, and IF there is something I can claim back and how to go about it.

For example -

My Total Salary = 6910.00

-

Then I get deducted -

AVS - 356
Assurance Chomage - 76
LAA (NP) - 80
Deduction CP - 412
APG Maladie - 35

Then again, after that is deducted, I get a "Salary Net Amount"

Then I get deducted IMPOT A LA SOURCE at 13.28% which comes to 917.65

So basically nearly 2000CHF taken off me every month

Is that normal? Can I argue this? I'm single/not married if anyone needs to know

This looks normal. No you cant argue it unless they made a mistake.

There are plenty of threads on taxation and the Swiss pension system if you search a bit.

Yes, those are all your deductions for unemployment insurance, accident insurance, pillar 1 insurance. I'm not totally sure what Deduction CP is, but guessing that's your contribution to Pillar 2. The Impot a la source is your tax at source - looks like you're in a higher taxed canton. So... you could move to a lower tax canton and you'd pay less tax (but more in commuting).
