Taxes for a professor working 2 hours a week

Hello everyone,

Just a simple question regarding taxes for a diplomat's husband (so a Ci working permit). I don't have a full time job but I occasionally give classes. I'm currently giving 2 hours of classes a week at a university in Geneva. I've just received my first payment and noticed that they only retained 6.25% as a "deduction pour non independant". However, the school did not retain any taxes as "deduction pour impots a la source". Is this correct? They tell me that because I only work 2 hours per week they do not have to retain any taxes at the source...

At a previous school that I worked for in Gland they did retain taxes at the source, which makes me think that probably my new school is doing something wrong. I was wondering if someone could give me some guidance here. I guess what I do not want to do is to have to declare taxes eventually, I just cannot afford to pay for accountant to do that on such little earnings.
