Hello Guys, I would really appreciate it if I can get some advice on my current tax situation. I came to Germany as an international student in 2018 for doing my Masters. During my study I used to pay a monthly insurance amount of around 90€ and also used to take semester tickets for my daily transportation and all. In 2018 I completed my studies and found a job. So currently I am working full time at a company. I was starting to think about filing my tax returns for the year 2019 now and I am having a few questions: 1. Should I start with filing the tax returns for 2018 when I was a student ? I had no income when I was a student but i still used to pay for insurance and things. Will it have any impact on my tax return for 2019 ? 2. In the year 2019 I used my car to to go work. It is my private car and I was wondering if I can add my car insurance to inside somewhere in my tax return ? Thanks in advance!
Working as a freelance while on a student visa has been discussed many times over here and was considered to be quite impossible. However, according to these, it is still possible with permission from the Ausländerbehörde: https://www.existenzgruender.de/SharedDocs/BMWi-Expertenforum/English-Version/Starting-a-Business-in-Germany-with-a-Student-Visa.html https://www.uni-bonn.de/studium/studium-in-bonn-fuer-internationale-studierende/betreuung-auslaendischer-studierender/pdf.dateien/arbeitsmoeglichkeiten-fuer-ausl.-stud.-2012 https://www.wir-gruenden-in-deutschland.de/en/foreign-students-and-doctorands-from-non-eu-countries/basic-infos/what-am-i-allowed-to-do/ https://www.wir-gruenden-in-deutschland.de/en/auslaendische-studierende-doktoranden-aus-nicht-eu-laendern/basisinfos/was-brauche-ich/ I can only find information online about whether it's possible or not, but cannot find information about what to do exactly. To anyone familiar with this, I have a couple of questions: Things to note: I am currently a post-graduate informatics student (more than 60% over with my studies) and would, therefore, be a freelance software engineer so I guess I do not need to register a business in this case. It is also worth noting that the plan is to work with online clients, from home, through intermediaries; freelance websites. I am currently employed in a student job so I inherently have a tax number and insurance. 1. What would be required for me to submit to the Ausländerbehörde in this case? 2. Will I still be able to work in my student job in addition to being a freelancer? What limits would apply if so? 3. Would it be different if my clients are offline instead of online? Cheers!
