  1. Just like the title says; with COVID and all, is it? The reason I'm asking is that it would be inconvenient to fit into my current schedule. 
  2. Is the Finanzamt open in Munich?

    Many thanks!  
  3. Recklessly, I'm filing my tax returns through trial and error. Following different threads:   https://www.toytowngermany.com/forum/topic/373691-monthly-vat-filing-for-it-freelancer-help/   https://www.toytowngermany.com/wiki/ELSTER   https://www.toytowngermany.com/forum/topic/204140-need-elster-online-help/   , as a Kleinunternehmer (Privatperson income < 17.5K EUR in 2019), I made a list of forms that    must be submitted on a monthly basis:   -- "Hauptvordruck"   -- "Anlage S" <= freelancers    but digging further I realized that:   -- "Umsatzsteuer Voranmeldung"   -- "Zusammenfassende Meldung"   I have a few questions about the amounts declared in "Anlage S" as well as "Umsatzsteuer Voranmeldung"   and "Zusammenfassende Meldung".   All forms have fields to declare revenue gained as a freelancer (e.g. android developer);    -- Will I be taxed only once on the revenue declared in each (being the same mount on every form)?   -- I seem to be unable to submit the "Zusammenfassende Meldung" as it requires a field "Art der Meldung"   1. "Erstmeldung"   2. "Berichtigung"   Both fields cannot be left empty; clicking the first ("Berichtigung" stands for resubmitting an erroneous form):   "Bei der vorliegenden Meldung handelt es sich um eine Erstmeldung mit nur einer Meldezeile, deren Summe gleich 0 ist.  Nullmendungen sind nicht abzugeben.  Bitte geben Sie eine Umsatzsteuer-Identifikationsnummer an"   What if the income is 0 for the respective time period (e.g. month)?   And one more thing; as a Kleinunternehmer (Privatperson income < 17.5K EUR in 2019), there is no 19% VAT to be added, right?           
  4. So, I received a "Bescheid uber die Festsetzung ..." ... . In short, the Finanzamt estimated  that I have a (side) income of 1000 EUR and decided to tax me 190 EUR (for 28.01.2020).    I have substantially less than that (~10 EUR :))  (I'm trying out different ideas for android apps)).    My fault is the mistaken understanding that if I'm a Privatperson/Freiberufler I mustn't submit a tax report  provided my income is less than 7500 EUR.    However, what's done is done. Is there any way of not paying the estimated tax fee? (I'm giving them a call tomorrow)    Some concerns:   -- I gave my IBAN in the "Hauptvordruck" form. Will they simply start draining it with whatever amount of estimated income?  -- there are tax fields such as religion and healthcare but these are already taken care of at my main job. Should these be also     paid for the side income as a freelancer?  -- I haven't specified any income in "Hauptvordruck"; but are these necessary if income was declared in Anlage-S? -- do I have to specify from whom/what commercial entity I received revenue from? In my case I'm simply publishing apps on      google play   I'm attaching my Anlage-S form (I left the rest of the fields blank; I lack financial know-how but the others seem to pertain to use-cases outside of "app development"):        https://www.toytowngermany.com/forum/topic/209829-freelance-tax-anlage-s/   covers some questions to some extent but not others.    The "Hauptvordruck" contains mainly banking/residence details. Are there any similar filled out samples of Anlage-S? Is there anything wrong  with the fields that were filled in?
  5. Are DUNS   https://www.dnb.com/duns-number.html   and the Steuernummer the same thing?
