  1. Hello and thank you all on your info.   Seeing how little info is on this topic is available tells me that it can have multiple issues.   Having a runaround was the first idea that came up to me, but knowing how bad on selling stuff I am pushed me to this other one. I don't have a problem with a type of a car that I would drive, a 4 seater is fine. However, there is always something that comes up with a car that is cheap and you don't have time to deal with it in a situation like this.   Rentals nowdays are really expensive. I will check on monthly rates too.     Thanks again.
  2. Hello,   It looks like that we are going to spend 5 months in the US so we are thinking of options for a car overthere. We are US citizens residing in Germany. Wife's company offered her to be in the US for a 5 months long assignment. They will cover some expenses and some not. They would cover 3k for freight (each way), probably taxable in Germany with 42.5% rate, so effectively that would be some 1.700 EUR . Still not sure about the car so we are thinking about sending our car from Germany to the US and back once the assignment is finished. Questions are: - Is a US citizen allowed to drive a foreign car. It would be for 5 months. I would not register it there since we would take it back yo Germany once we are done. - Do we need extra insurance or our wgv from Germany would be enough? - Would gasoline or diesel in the US work for a car made for German market? - Any recommendations on shipping company?   Thanks.
  3. Filing a tax return - help on how to file

    25.00 EUR? Really? Germans.   Even presidents can get gifts up to certain level without them being seen as income or bribe. I wish this government is as good in a case of ministers or Prime ministers that help companies/banks to avoid paying taxes.   I will not send it. Thank you once again and have a good one.
  4. Filing a tax return - help on how to file

    Hello @PandaMunich,   It looks like that we have ironed it out! Just paid taxes calculated by Finanzamt, little bit of interest and no extra fines or fees have been posted and no criminal charges. We should know by know if there were some.   I would like to thank you for your help, comforting messages that made us feel good even though you don't know us, and all of that for free to a stranger over internet (In Germany ;-) ). We would like to send you a Starbucks gift card, a nice cup of hot chocolate nowdays should help.   Regards.

      Thanks Panda!   Was the redo limit 4 years in past or it still needs to have 164 or 165 status no matter how many years passed?
  6. Filing a tax return - help on how to file

    Hello Panda,   Can you comment on issue we have? Thanks.   Hello,   We have found that we made a mistake in the tax calculation for 2017. We had some loss that we didn't apply. Is there a way to get a refund from the Finanzamt?   Thanks and regards.
