Deductions and allowances

Before the amount of tax you have to pay is calculated, certain amounts are deducted from your income, e.g. trade union fees, interest expenses and transport to/from work in excess of 24 km. The more and the higher the amounts you can deduct, the lower your taxable income will be and the less tax you will have to pay.

  • Your allowances and deductions are stated in your preliminary income assessment/tax card.
  • Most allowances and deductions are automatically stated in your preliminary income assessment and tax assessment notice.
  • Always check whether all allowances and deductions are stated in your preliminary income assessment and tax assessment notice.
