  1. Parents would be, but for them it's extra burocracy - changing contracts, which everybody hates.
  2. This one. Otherwise you will be always the last one by points.
  3. Bilingual kindergartnen in Munich

    I can recommend you this Greek - German Kindergarten: http://grkiga.de/konzept.html
  4. From what I know the competition to private (as in meaning those which don't have a contract with city of Munich, because practically a lot of them is private but paid by the city) is lower than to public, but it's still there. You apply to public and private through kita finder. Because of high competition it's close to impossible to get a place in city financed facility when one of parents is not working at least 30h per week. I think you get lower points for bigger distance from home to kita. Meaning if they have a candidate who lives closer and has the same as you employment situation, then he will get place. It's impossible to switch from private to public. But further kita may get not enough applicants, so if you have a car, go for it.   Also it's harder to get a place mid year, because some kid must switch to Kindergarten, but it's possible. You can still apply to public kitas when you have no job. It doesn't cost, and miracles happen.
  5. Quality of Grundschule in Am Hart

    Update of the above map. I don't see any differences. https://paedagokick.de/2017/11/28/faktencheck-22-arm-bleibt-arm-da-hilft-auch-keine-schule/
  6. The worst neighborhood/district of Munich

      Just take a look at quality of schools. Better schools usually means wealthier parents without immigration background. Also the colors here should mean the more yellow the worse. But just for living, there are no really bad neighborhoods in Munich. I would perhaps try to omit places with 1 point (if I had a choice, because it's hard to have a choice of good prices apartments in Munich) and other than at those numbers I would look at proximity to metro stations and commuting time to the center.   https://www.toytowngermany.com/forum/topic/354317-grundschule-in-am-hart/
  7. Higher Elterngeld by switching tax classes

    I think I understand now. Tax classes do not decide how much taxes one pays, but only how much taxes one prepaid.
  8. Higher Elterngeld by switching tax classes

    That was my understanding as well. Does it mean in context of PandaMunich words, that classes are transparent for final tax paid, when doing tax declaration? If so, then how does this work?
  9. Higher Elterngeld by switching tax classes

    Thx for pointing out one more obstacle. It's not a problem in my case. But you write there:   "It doesn't matter whether you have tax class 5 and your husband tax class 3, or the other way around: what you pay during the year is just a pre-payment. The final tax burden will only be calculated in the tax return that you will have to do before 31. May 2015 for the calendar year 2014."   And here is my question not answered? How do I technically get classes changed during tax returned? Smartsteuer web app which I have used for tax statement tells me to write my current tax class. So I cannot just change it for tax return. And if I use the class 5 for husband and 3 for lower earning wife in taxt statement then the tax burden will be calculated the same as it was paid through the year. Not optimal.
  10. Higher Elterngeld by switching tax classes

  11. I read in below article that families which expect to have a child and wife earns much less than husband, thus has class 5 and husband class 3 it's profitable to exchange classes. That makes sense, because Elterngeld is calculated as percentage of net salary of wife (in 99% of cases of wife). I just don't understand this part:   " Wechselt die Frau vor der Geburt des Kindes in die Steuerklasse III, obwohl sie erheblich weniger als ihr Mann verdient, hat das Paar zwar in der vorgeburtlichen Zeit weniger Netto zum Leben. Aber dieser steuerliche Nachteil wird mit der Steuererklärung wieder ausgeglichen." https://www.test.de/Steuerklasse-wechseln-Ein-Riesenplus-beim-Elterngeld-4577976-0/   How can one revert tax classes in tax declaration. In tax statement which I have been filling few weeks ago, Smartsteuer app was asking me to put "last tax class which I declared to finanzamt". I read elsewhere that tax classes can be changed only once per year. Is there some other way to use any tax classes while filing tax declaration or the Idea in this article is that in year 2019 the family has to change classes if they expect a child in 2020 and later in April 2020 before filling tax statement they have to revert class change in order to be allowed to use profitable for them tax classes in tax declaration for the year 2019?
