14424Re: [LandCafe] German Ground Tax
- Nov 21 5:01 PMThis is in english.Seit langem habe ich nicht auf deutche gesprochen.It looks like each state has an ad valorem real estate tax (land and buildings). I looked at a couple of state sites. It looks like it is paid quarterly, but there are exemptions of credit for children and and some kind of lower rate if the condo is newer.It appears that there is a london office ( i gather for foreign owners to pay?) maybe you could call them and they could give you a sketch of how real estate taxes actual work in Germany. I saw one site explaining how that soil evaluation is down for ag land and presumable to make assessments.

parcel. In many countries, the tax rate is set at the local level.

belasting or onroerende zaak belasting (OZB)) in 2 parts:
