Working in CH, Living in D - Income tax?

I might be working for a short time for a Swiss company, but living across the border in Germany. As far I can tell, if I stay less than 6 months in Germany, I will not have to pay CH or D income tax. Can anyone verify this?

Also, what does the "Cross-Border employment agreement" say exactly?

Danke!

You most likely pay taxes, but maybe you can claim that back?

Go to a Grenzgängerberatung and ask

don't worry. you will be taxed at source from day 1 and did not find a genius loophole.
