Tax declaration - foreign income (GVA)

Hello all, I am trying to know if I need to fill the tax declaration but information is inconclusive

- Foreigner non-european with a Permit B,
- employed
- Taxed at the source, salary under 60k per year
- Living in GVA

My question is: I have a source of income abroad (translations), under 10k per year, that I started last year.
Does this create the need to declare my taxes this year? If so, do I declare as an independent or "autres revenus"?

Any Geneva tax experts have advice on this?

Yes, it does. Any income > CHF 2,500 during the tax year not subject to withholding tax has to be declared [1], even if you're taxed at source. If I were you I'd contact your local tax office.
