I have one question in regard to "Steuererklärung".
I have been in Germany since 19 months and I am a student since October last year.
The questions are, Do I have to do it? If yes, when and where?
P.S: I am Syrian refugee, 25 years old, live in Eberswalde.
Thanks in advance
you surely don't have to do your "Steuererklärung", yet. Since you don't earn money as student, you don't have to pay taxes yet. But if you want to get your expences for your studies back, you should keep all your receipts and bills and as soon as you start to work and then start paying taxes, you can get your money back. For more detailed information maybe @Marcel can help you out!
I hope this answer did help you :-)
All the best
Hey Derar Rashed,
as long as you don't earn more than 450 Euro per month (which is probably the case if you work 8 hours per week), you won't have to pay any taxes and hence you won't need to do a Steuererklärung.
Hello Derar Rashed,
what students really should know abot paying taxes is explained by monster.de: goo.gl/shom9H The informations are detailed and slightly different to what has been in a generalised way said in the first given answer. The Information language is German, but for you are a student in Germany, I hope you can understand the article without any trouble.
By the way: To answer your question completely: In case you should have to do your taxes contact your local finance office for special formulas. You can do your return of tax online too.
Of course you have to do it. In some cases you get money back when you pay for insurances, pay for education and so on.
