A certificate is required for electronic authentication. You must acquire the certificate either by registering in My ELSTER or, if you use certain signature cards, by registering in My ELSTER. In order to use My ELSTER, you need a domestic ordering criterion (tax number).
This order criterion in the form of a tax number, can be applied for at the tax office Neubrandenburg - RAB.
If, for example, you work abroad as a tax consultant or as a tax advisor and have been commissioned by domestic taxpayers and want to transmit data authenticated, you can apply for the order criterion at the Neubrandenburg Tax Office - RAB.
Also domestic authorities who want to transmit data authenticated, but do not have a domestic tax number, can apply for the order criterion at the Neubrandenburg Tax Office - RAB.
If they live abroad and are the owner of a domestic property and want to submit your property tax return.
Fill out the application below and send it to the Neubrandenburg Tax Office - RAB.
Application for issuance of an order criterion
The Neubrandenburg - RAB tax office will then notify you of the classification criterion (tax number) by letter. With this you then register at My ELSTER for an organization certificate.
You only need the order criterion (tax number) for registration at My ELSTER. The authenticated transmission must always be made with the tax number (in the case of the property tax return with the corresponding file number of the property) of the taxpayer. With the assignment of the order criterion, no tax or tax-related checks are carried out. Please clarify this with the tax office responsible for the tax.
Note: The Neubrandenburg - RAB tax office is located in the federal state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. Therefore, "Mecklenburg-Vorpommern" must be selected as the country when registering.
