Lohncomputer calculation - Commuters tax


I was calculating my possible net salary in lohncomputer.ch site. And there you can choose canton or leave "commuters". As I consider accepting an offer to work in Zurich, i see that there is quite a difference if I choose just commuters. Wikipedia says commuter tax is for those who work but not live in a particular jurisdiction

Does it mean i need to choose Zurich as canton for tax calculation if I will live daily in Zurich for work? Tax rate then is not that small (>23%) then.

What would be criteria to classify for commuters tax (e.g. cannot I rent apartment?) ?

Thank you in avdance for help!

Switzerland will help you pay your fares, or costs, of traveling to work, on about 220 days each year, from your registered home address to your work place. You will not pay income tax on this money.
