German Tax Refunds for Married People

married people german tax refunds icon

Are you married and want to claim a German tax refund? The tax rates in Germany for married or jointly assessed couples are significantly lower than the rates for single tax payers, so its worth checking if you’re able to make a joint application with your spouse.

Employees in Germany can pay up to 42.5% income tax on their earnings. In most cases, you can claim back a significant amount of this. The refund amount is likely to be higher if you’re married and filing jointly due to a higher tax-free allowance for married people.

What’s more, your spouse doesn’t even have to have travelled to Germany with you. If you’re an EU or EEA resident and your spouse stayed at home when you were working in Germany, you can still apply jointly.

We work with a lot of people who didn’t initially inform the German Tax Office that they were married and were subsequently taxed incorrectly. The average refund we get for our married and jointly assessed German tax clients is €1950. Talk to us today about how we can help.

The average German Tax Refund for a Married or Jointly Assessed Couple is €1950
