mid-year arrival +tax calculation

Sorry if this has been asked quite a few times already, but the taxation system in Switzerland is so completely different to the one i'm used to back home, that I've still got 1000 questions.

I'm on a gross salary of 3500CHF, and started working here in Switzerland in September 2018. I'm on a C permit, so I don't have taxation at the source, instead I have to lodge a tax statement in December.

I received an Akontorechnung for this year's salary, which they've projected as 40,000 CHF income and calculated I pay 1491.05 in taxes, which works out at 372.76 per month. I have a college I work with who lives in my city (Luzern) earns slightly more than I do, is on an L permit, and is only being charged 230CHF per month in Quellensteuer. I'm wondering if I'm being charged too much and will get some of this back, because for my low income, this is a lot of money to pay per month for me.

If I am eligible to have some of this paid back, what is the general procedure to do so? Very new to this so all help is appreciated greatly!

Re: mid-year arrival +tax calculation

You don't fill out the tax forms in December, you fill them out next spring (depends on the canton, here it's end of April).

If you've paid too much, there is nothing further to do, they will refund the difference.

But the amount seems correct.
