Two small tips for Parents to pay less tax in Germany for Parents

1. Childcare

If you’ve got young children, you’re able to claim their childcare costs as a deductible on your tax return. As Weber tells us: “Many expats don’t know that you can claim these childcare fees, you simply need to have a record of payment somewhere safe, that you can show if your local tax office wants to see your records.”  

2.School fees

If you have a family, it’s not just childcare costs you should consider. “If you’ve got school-aged children who are attending a private or international school, then their school fees can be claimed as a deduction,” Weber says. As always, be sure to keep full records, as if the Finanzamt  (‘Finance Office’ for your region) come calling, they’ll want to see them in their entirety, for the year in question.
