Lindner wants to extend the deadline for submitting property tax returns

Federal Finance Minister Christian Lindner (FDP) wants to extend the deadline for submitting property tax returns. Lindner announced on Twitter on Wednesday that he would make this proposal to the federal states. "People (as well as the tax consultants and the tax authorities) have too many worries and burdens at the same time," Lindner justified the step.

In the course of the property tax reform, millions of properties nationwide have to be revalued. Owners of houses, apartments and land actually have to submit a property tax return by October 31st. The declaration of determination must be submitted in electronic form to the tax authorities.

So far, only a quarter to a third of those affected have done this, said Lindner on the RTL/ntv program “Frühstart”. "Some, maybe older people, pensioners, are overwhelmed by the property tax," added the minister. He suggested a "manageable period" of "not many months" for the extension of the deadline.

An extension of the deadline had been in the air for a long time because of the slow submission of the declarations. According to the Federal Ministry of Finance, the federal states have to decide on this.
