Frequently Asked


Any Questions? Here you can find the frequently asked questions.

Step 1: Request a non-binding offer. We need brief information about the current tax situation and the current world-wide sources of income. We will send a fee proposal based on this information.

Step 2: Come on board! We need your personal information as well as all documents regarding your worldwide income. Our master data sheet and a checklist of required documents simplify the process.

Step 3: We get to work and prepare a draft tax return. If case of any questions, we will contact you directly. As a rule, we need about 4 weeks to prepare a draft tax return.

Step 4: When all questions are resolved, we ask for a GO from you to submit the tax return.

A tax return must be filed in following cases:

  • Income (including so-called progression income such as short-time allowance, unemployment benefit or parental allowance) has been earned in excess of EUR 410.
  • In the case of married persons, the tax class combination 3 and 5 is used.
  • In the year of moving to/from Germany
  • If a self-employed or commercial activity is carried out, the tax office usually always requests a tax return.

If you file your tax return yourself, the following deadlines apply:

Tax return 2021: 31.10.2022 (already expired)

Tax return 2022: 30.09.2023

If you are represented by a tax advisor in tax matters, extended submission deadlines apply:

Tax return 2021: 31.08.2023

Tax return 202: 31.07.2024

A late filing surcharge of at least EUR 25 applies for each month of late filing. If the 2021 tax return has not yet been submitted, it makes sense to hire a tax advisor to avoid these penalties.

Every property owner is required to file a property tax return by 31 January 2023. This is a one-time tax return and is used to recalculate the property tax. We are happy to provide support here at short notice.
