In order to take advantage of the tax benefits, you need a special tax certificate, which must be presented to the tax office. Upon request, you will receive this certificate from your competent monument authority.

The tax certificate can be issued by the competent monument protection authority for all types of cultural monuments on which measures have been carried out according to the type and scope

Application documents and a confirmation of the monument status can be obtained from the monument protection authorities.
