Tax office

The Munich tax office, or Muenchener Finanzamt as it is known in German, is based at Deroystrasse which is one block away from the Hauptbahnhof.

The tax office website is extremely comprehensive and contains lots of good information about what taxes must be paid and how. All the tax registration and declaration forms are also online there:

With a bit of luck you should never have to visit the Munich tax office in person. All German tax returns can now be submitted electronically via the internet. This is achieved using a system called "Elster". Previously this was a client program which had to be downloaded and run locally on your PC. Since 01.Jan.2006, however, all tax returns can also be submitted via a web-based application. Here is the link for Elster:
