We are responsible for processing the tax affairs of most tax citizens. In our field of activity, we process the tax cases of all natural persons with income from business operations, self-employment, agriculture and forestry, non-independent work, capital assets, renting and leasing and other income (e.g. pensions or private sales transactions).
Furthermore, we also process applications for the issuance of a non-assessment (NV) certificate and applications for wage tax reduction in this area of work.
In particular, we handle the tax returns of corporations (e.g. AG, GmbH), partnerships (e.g. GbR, KG and OHG) and associations. In addition, we also decide in this context on the charitable status of associations.
We handle appeals at the tax office, e.g. appeals against tax assessments. However, we only become active if the assessment office that issued the notice does not grant the tax citizen's application or no other agreement can be reached. In addition, we represent the tax office in legal proceedings before the tax court and the Federal Fiscal Court
We process and monitor advance VAT returns, check the opening of new businesses (start-ups) and are also responsible for all other issues in the field of VAT.
We audit the sales tax facts of the companies on site. Through our audit findings and our subsequent audit report, we provide the basis for the correct assessment of sales tax to the office staff.
In order to ensure the uniform assessment and collection of VAT, we can enter the properties and premises of commercially or self-employed persons during business and working hours in order to establish facts that are relevant for VAT purposes.
We process and monitor the employers' income tax returns. We are also responsible for clarifying any questions of doubt that may arise.
We audit payroll tax issues of the companies on site with regard to payroll tax issues. Through our determination or the audit report, we provide the basis for the correct tax assessment to the office staff.
We determine the real estate transfer tax in the case of acquisition transactions of land (real estate). In addition, we carry out value assessments according to the standard value or capitalised earnings value method and thus provide the basis for taxation.
We are responsible for the monitoring and complete, correct and timely processing of all payment transactions in the tax offices.
We take care of the recovery of unpaid amounts due.
In our area of responsibility, enforcement officers are also deployed in the field for this purpose.

We are responsible for the assessment of inheritance and gift tax.
We audit the tax circumstances of companies on site. In doing so, we include all tax-relevant facts in our audit report and thereby form the basis for the tax assessment by the assessment offices.
Our top priority is the uniform assessment of tax. In this context, our main task is to investigate and uncover tax offences. Within the scope of the clarification of the facts, we determine both the bases of taxation and the circumstances of the offence that are significant in terms of criminal law.
As an investigative body of the public prosecutor's office, the officers of the tax investigation unit can carry out criminal procedural measures (such as house searches).
In criminal tax matters, we perform the tasks of the competent prosecuting authority that are otherwise performed by the public prosecution offices. This means that we conduct the investigations and, after their conclusion, also apply for e.g. penalty orders.
