The LohnsteuerHilfeverein München e.V. is an approved self-help-organisation
of taxpayers, that provides its members with access to professional tax consulting conducted by tax consultants or qualified executives.
 

Basic requirement for any assistance is the membership.

Membership in a Lohnsteuerhilfeverein is limited to people, who only have earnings according to § 4 Nr. 11 StBerG. For all others the legislative authority only allows the support provided by a tax consultant.

Acceptable income:

  • Income from employment
  • Other forms of regular income (e.g. pension benefits)
  • Alimony income § 22 Nr. 1a EStG
  • According to § 4 Nr. 11 letter c StBerG in addition to this income other revenues,
    that derive from different sources, will be tolerated: up to 13.000 € for singles and 
    26.000 € for joined assessment (e.g. income from rent subletting and capital gains).

Even if our members mostly live and work in the greater Munich area, this applies to all of them: A membership is not tied to a certain place. And meanwhile more and more consultings are handled via letter.

Each member receives professional, individal tax consulting conducted by tax consultants or qualified specialists free of charge. (⇒ Services)

The annual fee for a membership depends on previous year's earnings and starts at 45 €.

As opposed to other associations we do not charge any initial fee.

In most cases the annual fee is much lower
than the consulting fees of a tax consultant.

Having payed the annual fee all member services
are covered completely. (⇒ Services)
