Berlin The clock is ticking. Owners only have six weeks to submit their filing a property tax return. Not only for citizens, also for companies time is running out. Because they are already facing major challenges as a result of the energy crisis.
Several large associations propose in letters to the Federal Minister of Finance Christian Lindner (FDP) and the state finance ministers, who are available to the Handelsblatt, are now alarmed: the deadline for the property tax return must urgently be extended in view of the burden on companies. The tax union and the Federal Chamber of Tax Advisors also warn of chaos if the previous deadline of October 31 is adhered to. There is even talk of a “collapse of the tax offices”.
The letter from the Mittelstand working group to the finance ministers of the federal and state governments states that the corona and energy crises have drained the substance of many companies. In the currently extremely challenging situation, any additional and avoidable bureaucratic burden must urgently be avoided.
