Non-resident taxation


I purchased a roperty in Vaud late 2017 and received a bill for 2018:
'Impot sur le revenue et la fortune 2018 Impot anticipe 2018 Impot federal direct 2018'.
I was told by the local town office that this was the tax based on 'imputed income' of my property and a wealth tax and that it MUST be paid.

I did get a L permit for residency (temporary one year) as I was also advised that I had to get this. After further research, I found that it was ot necessary as I was not in Switzerland for gainful activity and did not spend a period of more than 90 days.

I do not have any income in Switzerland.
I have a mortgage in Switzerland through a Swiss bank.

My understanding is that I am a non-resident and so am not liable for tax. Is this correct?

I have just received a letter from the cantonal office 'Invitation a deposer la declaration 2018' which I understand to be demanding for me to file a full tax return.

Should I have paid the original tax invoice for CHF 13000?
Am I actually liable for tax in Switzerland?

I tried to call the cantonal office but they didn't speak English and the school never taught me 'tax language' in French!
Any help is so very much appreciated!
