Elster Online and submission of paperwork

2 posts in this topic

Ok my German is not that great but I have struggled through the Elster online tax program with my old return next to me so it should be ok especially as I have a simple tax situation. But I have not submitted through them before so can someone clarify if I lodge electronically do I then send the receipts and paper work in as well (and where) or do I wait for them to be requested. I can not find this info anywhere. Can someone tell me where on Elster I could find more details.

I can recommend Elster, if I can do it most people can. I am doing my 2005 return and hopefully 2006 soon after.

Thanks.

It's on the first page of the Elster description for employees:

 

 

Belegvorlage nur auf Anforderung bei Einkommensteuererklärung

 

Bei einer Abgabe der Einkommensteuererklärung ab (dem Veranlagungszeitraum) 2003 über ELSTER ist die Einreichung von Belegen, soweit sie nicht aufgrund gesetzlicher Vorschriften verpflichtend einzureichen sind, nur auf Anforderung durch das Finanzamt erforderlich; siehe Ablauf der elektronischen Steuererklärung »»». Die Belege müssen aber dennoch aufbewahrt werden und sind dem Finanzamt auf Verlangen nachträglich vorzulegen.

Only send in receipts if requested, but be sure you keep them in case.
