Income tax return, application
Unfortunately this specification of service has not yet been completely translated.

Auch wenn Sie nicht gesetzlich zur Abgabe einer Einkommensteuererklärung verpflichtet sind, haben Sie die Möglichkeit eine entsprechende Erklärung zur Veranlagung einzureichen.
If you have paid too much income tax and you are not required to submit an income tax return, you can apply to the tax office for an assessment of income tax.
Too much income tax may have been withheld for the following reasons, for example:
  • The employment relationship did not last the entire year,
  • Spouses / life partners each have tax class IV,
  • Deductible expenses were incurred
  • A child allowance and an allowance for care and upbringing or training needs come into consideration.
The application for assessment for income tax is submitted by filing the income tax return.

In principle, the tax return must be submitted to the tax office responsible for your current place of residence. If you have any questions about the correct filing of your tax return in connection with registering / changing your place of residence, see the links.

The application can be made using the electronic tax return (ELSTER) or the income tax return form.

Preconditions

  • Für Sie besteht keine gesetzliche Verpflichtung zur Abgabe einer Einkommensteuererklärung
