  1. Hello,   In 2020, because of Corona lockdowns I had a mix of working in the office, fully from home and mainly from home. I had/have a dedicated room for home office. I look in the forum and also different websites but I got more confused how I should fill tax form (Anlage N - Werbungskosten). I could divide my working time in 2020 to the following slots. Could you please advice for each of them what I should enter as "erster Tätigkeitsstätte", "Arbeitstage je Woche" and which costs and up to how much are accepted:   From 01.01 till 14.03 - fully working in the office: this part is clear and is like last years erster Tätigkeitsstätte: company address  Arbeitstage je Woche: 5 days costs: mainly transportation costs From 15.03 till 14.07: fully from home (5 days per week) and order from my employer was working from home. Is the following entries correct? erster Tätigkeitsstätte: my home address  Arbeitstage je Woche: 5 days costs: partial rent and utility costs: can the total cost be claimed?  transportation costs can't be claimed although I paid the monthly DB fees based on my yearly contract with them. right? From 15.07 till 31.12: mainly from home (4 days per week from home and 1 days per week in the office) and recommendation from employer was working from home as much as possible. Is the following entries correct? erster Tätigkeitsstätte: my home address  Arbeitstage je Woche: 5 days or should I enter 4 and enter another Tätigkeitsstätte with company address and 1 day/week for the same time slot? costs: partial rent and utility costs: should I calculate it for 4 days or 5? can the total cost be claimed? transportation costs: can it be claimed since I paid the monthly DB fees based on my yearly contract with them and went to the office 1 day per week? if so, should I make another Tätigkeitsstätte with company address and 1 day/week for the same time slot? Could you advice how Werbungskosten should be entered for slot 2. and 3.? Should slot 3. be divided to two? Can the transportation cost be claimed for slot 3.? or should slot 2 and 3 get combined since "erster Tätigkeitsstätte" is my home? Thank you in advance.  
  2. I am non-EU citizen. After submitting my Einbürgerung application some months ago, yesterday I received a letter that my Einbürgerungsurkunde is ready for pick up in 2 weeks. I can't give up my non-EU citizenship and I want to take German Passport  (Reisepasses) definitely. Now my question is that if I can also take Personalausweis (German ID-card)? If so, should I apply first for the Personalausweis and then Reisepasses?
  3.   Thank you for your answer.    Since the same certificate from the same institute got accepted for 2 friends but in small towns around the city where I live, I wonder if each person or office decides by themselves about validity of a certificate?!    Unfortunately in my case, there were no Beratungstermin since I applied in September when the office was closed. I just sent an email with my documents attached to that and they just answered and requested documents with post. and then having the money paid, they confirmed starting the process.
  4. Hello,   In September 2020 after 8 years being in Germany; 2 and half years as student in a university (and working at the same time temporary) and then working permanently, I applied for German citizenship (Einbürgerung). I sent all documents to the office and transferred the money to their bank account as their request after confirmation of validity of my documents. Although during last 6 months I asked several times for any update about progress in my application and just heard that it is in the process, surprisingly yesterday I received a letter that my B1 language certificate can't be considered for the German citizenship application. They said that the certificate should be issued officially by telc and the institute from that I took the B1 DTZ certificate is not in their list. They said that they will through away my application after 6 months if I don't present a new certificate!   I can't understand the case at all. Does it mean that they had not checked my documents in the last 6 months? How can I answer to their letter? Is there any option or alternative for me to request here? Beside the effort (time and money), I have to wait 2 months for the next available exam at VHS and then at least 1 month for the result! Can they reject a document after 6 months while they accepted at the beginning?   Thank you.
