The issue is that until 2021 I declared the tax together with my ex partner and I am afraid now if I informed the divorce on 26.07

Hello

It is no Problem as in tax declaration you sign Einzelveranlagung on First page

Hello Christian
I am not sure if I understood
Kunde: hat geantwortet vor 14 Tagen.
Ive benn declaring taxes together since this year, but now I am divorced as per the sentence
How to inform then?

You can do it in the yearly tax declaration

Kunde: hat geantwortet vor 14 Tagen.
I have declared already for the 2021. I just want to change the steurclasse to 1. How should I do that if I already sent the declaration for this year?

Yes you should do it with the form Steuerklassenwechsel

Hello, I am happy to help you. However, I have a question about this: Have you lived with your ex-wife for at least another 1 day in 2021? Then it would not be a problem if you have chosen the "Zusammenveranlagung" in 2021. That is permissible.

Kind regards,

Knut Christiansen

Otherwise, please write to your responsible tax office and inform them that you would like to switch to tax class 1 after the divorce.

Ok do you think that Finanzamt communicate with the court?
in the court we said that we dont live together since 2019 (but we have been declaring taxes together as we were still married). Do you think I will get some sort of fine?

No, the tax office does not communicate with the court. That is under data protection. Therefore, I do not assume that you will get a fine or the like.

Thank you for confirming that. So can I fill up the form: Declaration of Separation in Elster and declare the date of the sentence of divorce: 26.07.2022 on it? since was the court decision?
Is this the right way to communicate that I need to change to class 1?

For the joint tax return, it would only be necessary that you have tried to live together for at least 1 day a year. That could have been the case despite the divorce.

Yes, you can write that. But please inform the tax office outside the tax return that you now want to switch to tax class 1 due to a divorce. A simple letter is sufficient for this. I am now in a short appointment and otherwise I will contact you immediately afterwards.

For this year I declared jointly already and later the sentence came...
ok please contact me when possible for you
thank you

The statement you made this year concerns the previous year. But if you have lived together for another day in 2021 (or at least explain it), the joint tax return is not a problem. The divorce was in 2022, so you can no longer file a joint tax return until 2022 (submit in 2023).

Understood last question: I can prove that was living together in 2021 because we still had anmeldungs in the same flat...I only changed my anmeldung to a new flat after the sentence. So I could prove I lived together for 01 day in*****

Yes, that would be plausible in principle. Your ex-wife would confirm that too? After all, she also submitted the tax return.

Apart from that, I do not assume that the tax office will ask for it at all.

Kunde: hat geantwortet vor 14 Tagen.
she can! How can I have a template of a letter to inform Finanzamt? I read that is only through Elster :(

Write a simple letter and let them know that you want to change the tax class. Enter your personal tax ID number. Normally, the tax office will then change your tax class as well. Then ask for a confirmation of the new tax class to be sent.

Please sign the letter in person.

Kunde: hat geantwortet vor 14 Tagen.
Should I sent a copy of the court sentence? Last question I promise

No, I wouldn't do that. As a rule, the tax office does not require the divorce decree either. It would be enough for you to write that you have been divorced since July 26, 2022.

I would then be pleased if you change the rating to 3-5 stars, as I will only be paid proportionately by the portal operator.
