As a result of the storms in mid-July this year (in particular on 14 and 15 July 2021), considerable damage was caused by flooding in parts of the Federal Republic of Germany (in particular Bavaria, North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saxony). The elimination of this damage will lead to considerable financial burdens for many citizens.
Citizens and companies in Baden-Württemberg can claim tax relief if they support victims of the floods in the affected federal states. The state-specific disaster decrees also apply in Baden-Württemberg.
So far, Bavaria, North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saxony have issued a disaster decree due to the floods in July 2021.
