  1. Hello,    I applied for my tax return at Kelsterbach Finanzamt 4 weeks ago, however, I have to urgently move to Berlin now. I still have not heard anything from the finanzamt yet.   Would city registration (anmeldung) in Berlin suffice and Kelsterbach Finanzamt would automatically know my new address for future communications? I am confused here and have no clue what to do.    Thanks.
  2. Finanzamt: moving to a new district

    Hi everyone. Hope everyone has been safe during these times.   I have a few questions under the topic of freelancing.   First of all, I just moved to a new district within Berlin and know I need to get a new Steuernummer. I'm registered both as a freiberufler and as a Gewerbe, so I have two numbers (don't know if it matters). What is the best way to go about doing that? Calling, submitting a new Fragenbogen?   Do I also have to get a new Gewerbeschein? Do I need to pay for it again?   Second, when I first registered as a freelancer back in 2018 I had written 3 different things on my Fragenbogen that all fell under the category of "freiberufler" (that was before I had the need for a Gewerbeschein). When I went to the Finanzamt the clerk asked me if I did all three and I said yes. She stamped the document and sent me on my way. However, when I got the letter with my number on the mail there was only one of my activities written down. I didn't think much of it because I had clearly stated that I do 3 different things. Now I'm a bit worried I should have gotten 2 other numbers, especially considering that during Corona most of my income is coming from one of the activities not stated on the letter. How should I proceed with this?   Finally, in terms of invoicing: what happens when I get a new Steuernummer? Do I have to go back and correct my old invoices?   Thanks!
  3. Hello everyone, I've been reading a lot the past two days and there is a lot of info here on this web site that I wanted to thank you about. The wealth of info in here is positively overwhelming in a good way.   My wife and I are both freelancers. We opened both of our activities and registered them in October 2019. We started making invoices. In January 2020 we calculate our taxes and do everything with SteuerGo and Elster. We did not use an accountant. I did not pass the 17,500 but my wife did (the calculation was: total made in [October+November+December] / 3 * 12) and she resulted over 17,500.   I did the whole tax declaration using SteuerGo and Elster but we realized that from this year she will have to charge VAT. In fact, since January 2020 she started adding +19 MwSt to her invoices. Even if unfortunately they were only a few because in January the COVID19 issues were already heavy in her field of work, even if the real bad situation started here in March.   Now, I realized something that we might have missed:   1) Does she have to tell the Finanzamt "Hey, I did surpass 17,500 so I am now officially a Freiberufler that charges MwSt). If yes, which form is it and how to do it? Can I do it through my Elster? I do have my certificate and my taxes did include her and the family as a combination of the both of us (we have 3 Steuernr., one is for me, one for her and one as a family.. at least this is what the Finanzamt gave us :)).   2) Can I do her quarterly VAT declaration through my own certificate in Elster? Or does she have to open up a certificate of her own and use it?   These are the two main questions, I apologize in advance if this looks like a mess to you and if more questions are going to come up from your replies. Thanks in advance,
