Hello, I racked up a bit of debt to the TK a couple of years ago and in 2018 paid them back 1100EUR as part of a repayment plan. I'm just about to send off my Tax return and wondered if it's possible to add that to the deductions as voluntary contributions to healthcare? I found a similar post saying yes, but that was somebody deducting what they had paid in health insurance personally before finding a job. I wonder if the same applies when it is technically paying back a debt. Any thoughts would be great! LG, M
Giuls posted a topic in FinanceHi everyone, I know that this topic has been already discussed but I can't find the right forum where I will have a precise answer to my question. I was a Kleinerunternehmer last year and I wasn't sure how much I was going to earn this year so my Steuerberater suggested me to switch to VAT and ask my clients for the VAT in my invoices. This only because I don't want to be in the situation of having to pay umsatzsteuer and einkommenstauer in January 2018 without being prepared. FIRST QUESTION: I haven't earned more that 17500 yet (neither 8000) so I am going to pay the VAT even if I didn't exceed these limits. My tax consultant also told me that in case I won't earn more than 8500 I will pay VAT (monthly) but not Einkommensteuer at the end of the year. Is this correct? SECOND QUESTION: In any case I already wrote to the Finanzamt that I want to start paying VAT this year and I requested my Elster certificate so that I can independently do my monthly declaration. Unfortunately the elster online is the worst website in the history and its software it's even worse. I am clueless, what should my next step be? Should I first wait for another kind of number/code that represent that I am a VAT payer? How can I start with the monthly declaration? I got my certificate just yesterday and I still need to declare January, for which I will declare 0 but I want to insert the invoice from my tax manager so that I won't have to pay the VAT for it. Can anyone be so kind to explain me the next steps I need to take? Is it better to go with the website or software? If I select Umstatzsteuererklärung in the Formulare section of the website, it asks me to do it by year, not monthly and the latest year I can choose it 2015! I looked at the wiki guide but I can't understand what my first step should be, the Mantelbogen? Do I find it in my personal page on elster online? Any help will be greatly appreciated!! Thank you so much for your time helping me!! Giulia
