Quellensteuer and other taxes in Zurich

Hi everbody
I am employed in Zurich and making around 113'000 Fr/yr.
I am a little confused about how quellensteuer is calculated.

I referred to the quellensteuer calculation table of Kanton Zurich.

my bruttolohn pro monat corresponds to 8'313 Fr (after all AHV, Pension, krankenkasse reductions etc.)
according to the table (without church steuer, single, no kids)
the quellensteuer rate is 10.08%.. which corresponds to 839 Fr deduction for tax.

Is this the only tax that I am supposed to pay?? or are there additional kantonal/bundes etc. taxes that foreigners are charged?
10.08% quellensteuer seems pretty low.

lastly, I was married until Jan 2009 and I am now divorced. But I still fill tax form. My tax is NOT deducted from my salary. But I believe it shouldnt matter whether I fill tax form or I got taxed at source right? They should still deduct the same amount??

Re: Quellensteuer and other taxes in Zurich

don't know but don't worry. They always deduct my quellensteure and then about 2 years later come back wanting more. It's almost impossible to work out unless you are an expert.

I went to a tax guy and he couldn't help.
