Good to Know - German Taxes in a Nutshell

Depending on their source of income, international researchers living in Germany can be subject to German income tax. Hence this information session will give an overview of the most important aspects of the German income tax for expats and try to tackle the most common questions arising like: Do I have to pay income taxes? Do I need to make an income tax declaration? When do l have to file my tax return and how? Do I also have to pay taxes in my home country? A Q&A session will be allocated at the end so as to tend to your personal questions. You are most welcome to send in any specific questions or areas you are interested prior to the session.

Lecturer: Claudine Ndlovu (Research Associate “International Taxation & Business Law B.A”, Hochschule Rhein-Waal)
