Key Tax Dates and Deadlines for Germany

#TaxTipsGermany

The tax year in Germany is the same as the calendar year. Returns are filed for each calendar year and reflect the financial statements for the business year ending in that calendar year.

Assessments are issued once the tax office has reviewed the return. See below some key tax dates and deadlines to be aware of!
