  1. Tax Return on BU Possible?

    Hello everyone, I am about to start working, and I have heard a lot about the Berüfsunfähigkeitsversicherung or the Disability Insurance. My question are, does it make sense to get one as an Ausländer/foreigner if you're gonna leave germany one day? What happens when you do leave germany and have been paying for the insurance for an amount of time? Do you get the money back if you dont wanna be paid ? And last but most importantly, can i get tax returns in full for the payments made for the disability insurance? if no, what percentage, and how is it established how much it will be?
  2. 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.
  3. Hi guys,   In 2019 I bought a few US stocks and accumulative ETFs through a foreign broker. I am trying to fill tax declaration (for 2019), spend a week trying to figure out how to declare foreign dividends (from stocks) and ETFs and I am still confused a lot.   Please help with the following: In some posts (from 2018+, guides, or written by tax advisers) it is said that I can declare dividends in Anlage KAP line 15. When I check the info in ELSTER it is said about this line  But I did not buy anything in 2018. Do I need to fill something here? If I try to add an item there, it asks for 2018 data only. If not this place where else I can declare that I bought ETFs in 2019?   Please help   
  4. Hi Guys,   This is the first time that I have declared a tax return in Germany.   My situation is as follows:   1) I moved to Germany in late September 2016 to start studying for my master's degree.      In 2016, I had to pay tuition fees and rent, and I did not have income that year.   2) In 2017:  I was still a student and paid for tuition fees and rent.     09/2017: I started a working student position in a company (named A) and earned around €850/month                    (I did not have to pay tax while working there, maybe because there is a special                     agreement between the company and Finanzamt for student - no tax evasion).        11/2017: I bought a laptop for my study.   3) In 2018: I was still a student and paid for tuition fees and rent.                   I was working at company A.     10/2018: I finished my study while keeping the student status until 04/2019.   4) In 2019: My student status was valid until 04/2019.     04/2019: My contract at company A ended.     04/2019 - 08/2019: I was looking for a job without additional income.     08/2019 - 12/2020: I found a job in company B and started working there.   My questions are:   1) Is it possible that this year (2020) I can file a tax return for all previous years (2016-2019) or for     some selected years (2016, 2017, and 2019 - without 2018) at once?     If yes, what is the procedure?   2) Is it possible that I can claim back all tuition fees during my master's degree?      If yes, which proofs do I need to submit? (a confirmation from university or just the bank transfer details are enough)   3) Is it possible that I can claim back all renting fees during my master's degree?     If yes, which proofs do I need to submit? (a confirmation from studentenwerk or just the bank transfer details are enough)   4) Is it possible that I can claim back all health insurance fees (AOK) during my master's degree?     If yes, which proofs do I need to submit? (a confirmation from the health insurance provider or just the bank transfer details are enough)   5) In 2019: I only worked as a full-time employee for 5 months and earned €X. However, I paid taxes on the total amount (€X) with a tax rate as if I received     a full year wage.     Is it possible when I file a tax return, the Finanzamt will lower the tax rate on my €X and give me back the difference?   6) In the tax return statement:      6.1) Do I need to state the wage that I received from company A (no tax had to paid)?     6.2) In 2019: Line "Annual gross wage": Will I fill out the €X or the full year amount on my employment contract?   7) Do I need to submit "Lohnsteuerbescheinigung" or the Finanzamt have already had the data? (honestly, I lost the paper and hope that it is possible     that I do not have to submit it).   Thank you very much for your advice.     Ads   Lohnsteuerbescheinigung Ads                 
  5. Hi,   I started working in Germany on December 2019 after relocating from Italy. I would now like to file my tax return (Steuerklasse 3, thus mandatory). I would like to claim the lump sum for relocation. What I cannot understand is what happens in my case as I worked only one month in 2019 (December) and so my tax return would be quite small. I understand that the lump sum is for tax deduction and not money that are given directly to you. Do I lose this deduction if I file the request of the lump sum now? Or does the tax office keep that deduction that one can then use for next year's (2021) declaration?   Using online tax return platforms to calculate my tax return I should get a small refund in general thanks to other deductions and it is quite unclear what happens with the lump sum which is calculated to be around € 1.500. I wouldn't like to lose the possibility to have that deduction.   Thank you in advance for any information on this issue.
  6. Hi, I want to submit a tax declaration for last year.    I worked for a company for 4 months until September 2019 and bought a personal item in August with a discount benefit from the employer. The employer sent me two different Lohnsteuerbescheinigung. First one covers my work period with my tax class 1 and the second one has a period of 01.09-31.10.2019 with tax class 6. As I talked to the employer, I paid taxes for the item I bought within this discount, that´s why I received it.   To submit the tax declaration, should I sum them up or submit them separately?  
  7. UK rental income on German tax returns

    Hi all, I'm new to the forum and have a question about my tax returns.   I am employed in Germany and pay taxes here. Last year I started receiving rental income from my UK flat. I have declared this income in the UK and do not need to pay tax on it as it falls under the tax threshold.   My question is - when I declare this to the Finanzamt, what will happen? I read that the UK has a double taxation agreement with Germany and I cannot be taxed twice on the UK income, but will the Finanzamt add the UK income to my German income and tax me on the total amount?   I live in Germany for more than 180 days in the year, but still have a registered address in the UK.   I plan to become a German citizen this year (and keep my UK passport). Would that put me in a different tax position? Any help is greatly appreciated. xxxx
