Will I transit in 2019 from B to C tax category?

Dear forum users, I would like to get some insight from your experience in a relation to my situation.

My status is:

One working person earns approximately 90,000CHF annum before tax.
Nonworking wife, two kids with age below 4 years, does not belong to any religion and living in Canton Zuerich.
I am paying

As expected, I was in a B category, 8300CHF (including 2x200CHF for kids) with the tax 2.97% (247 CHF month).

https://www.steueramt.zh.ch/internet...de/tarife.html

My wife used to be a teacher, so in 2018 she delivered 2 courses that she had to issue the invoice in 2018. The invoice had only the number of hours of classes, not specifying when it starts and ends.

The first invoice was in May 2018 for 700 CHF, and another 2 months later for 700 CHF as well. My wife gave those two invoices to the tax office and they have issued a change request to my employer.

My wife only worked basically for 2 months and taking cares of the kids without being gainfully employed.

Will the issuing the invoices change my tax bracket from B2 to C2 and I will have to pay the tax from May 2018 till the end of the year?
Basically, the category switch will move me to the tax 6.60% (553 CHF month), so I will have to return the difference from May 2018 till now? It is quite a lot, tax difference is 3.63% (306 CHF) x 8 months in 2018 + 2x2019 = 3060 CHF.

Can anyone confirm that I am right here and Will have to pay 200% what my wife earned?

Thank you for your time!

I will have to pay the tax from may till now as a married, working with the tax group C2. And issue a few statements that my wife is not gainfully employed from Jan. 2019.
And if I am really enthusiastic about that tax, I can also send a document to Zurich tax office to consider "this special case" to lower the tax, but it will be looked after from 1.5y-2y.

we have a similar situation. Tax office replied that we will be taxed as double employment until 3 months of the last earning.

Better to check with them by yourself. Tax is complex.
