The new property tax reform 2022 – This is what you should know

Attention house and property owners: On January 1, 2022, the new property tax regulation will come into force. As early as 2018, the Federal Constitutional Court declared the regulations on the standard valuation for the assessment of property tax to be unconstitutional. The newly drafted regulation is intended to align the assessment of the property tax more closely with the actual value. In 2022, the basis for the new property tax should be determined.

But what does the property tax reform mean for me as owner?

From 2025, property tax will be calculated and levied according to new rules. Therefore, all properties in Germany will be newly recorded and rated in 2022. The valuation is carried out on the basis of a “Declaration for determining the property tax value”. For all house and property owners, this means: A new valuation of all properties and buildings is required and a declaration to determine the property tax value (so-called property tax return) must be submitted between July 1st, 2022 and October 31st, 2022.

Tight deadlines require timely preparation

Under certain circumstances, this can become a very time-consuming task, because various data and documents have to be collected in order to be able to submit the property tax return and all of this within a tight deadline. The determination of the property tax value is made more difficult by the application of different regulations depending on the location of the property. Either the federal model or an individual state model can be used to calculate the property tax. In order to be well prepared and to be able to submit the property tax return on time, it is advisable to seek the support of a tax advisor in good time.
