You report coffee tax in writing as follows: Download the appropriate form from the Customs Administration website or the Federal Tax Administration's Forms Management System (FMS): Use Form 1807 and 1808 if you removed or consumed coffee from a tax warehouse. Use Form 1816 for other tax declarations, for example, if you are Unlawfully removed or consumed coffee from a tax warehouse, Produced coffee or goods containing coffee without a permit, participated in irregularities in the movement under suspension of excise duty, or supplied coffee to persons without permission for tax-free commercial use. Complete the form in full and send it by post to your main customs office. The main customs office checks your tax return. If any discrepancies are discovered during the check, you will be given the opportunity to correct any incorrect information or complete any incomplete information up to the due date of the duties. If the claim is already due or if you do not correct the information, the main customs office will assess the duties with a tax assessment and inform you of this. If the check does not lead to any objections, the amount of duty due is normally collected from your account by direct debit. In these cases, you do not need to do anything further. If the coffee tax has arisen in connection with irregularities or a disregarded ban, you must also calculate it yourself and submit a written tax return: Use the form "Tax declaration for coffee and/or coffee-containing goods in individual cases" (Form 1816). If you import coffee or goods containing coffee from a third country, you submit the tax declaration as part of the customs declaration. The main customs office from whose district you operate your business or, if you do not operate a business, in whose district you have your residence is responsible. If your business is operated from a location outside Germany or if you are not resident in Germany, the main customs office in whose district you first appear for tax purposes is responsible.
