Tax at Source (Foreigner) / Ordinary tax on total income (Resident)


Please can someone assist with my query below

I am a foreign national and work in Fribourg. I currently have my tax deducted monthly by my employer. I live in Geneva and commute each day to work by train.

I received my annual tax declaration form from the Geneva tax authority and I would like to know:

1. As a foreigner, can I deduct my travel costs for tax purposes?

2. If I submit my travel costs as a deduction, will I no longer be "taxed at source" and now taxed as an ordinary resident on all my assets? (So my tax status will be changed as if I were resident)

3. As an unmarried person, is the tax rate lower when "taxed at source" or when taxed as an "ordinary resident" in Geneva? Which is more beneficial?

Any guidance with this information will be greatly appreciated!
