For information on the processing of personal data in the tax administration and on your rights under the General Data Protection Regulation as well as on your contact persons in data protection matters, please refer to the general information letter from the tax administration.


On this page you will find forms and pre-printed forms.

Did you know that you can also submit many of these forms digitally via ELSTER? If you submit your tax return via ELSTER, you will benefit from a plausibility check and the option of transferring data from the previous year. With electronic document retrieval, you can transfer data available at the tax office, such as data from insurance companies or employers (wages, pensions, health insurance contributions) directly into your return.

You can find more information on the benefits and advantages on the ELSTER homepage.

Electronic transmission obligation

In many cases you are obliged to submit your tax return electronically. The transmission obligation exists, for example, for the income tax return if you earn income from profits. This is income from agriculture and forestry, from trade or from self-employment. A list of the circumstances in which electronic transmission is mandatory can be found on the ELSTER homepage.

If you only have income from employment, you do not have to submit your income tax return electronically. This is the case, for example, if you are an employee. However, the tax return via ELSTER also offers many benefits and advantages for these groups.

Note: Only in cases of hardship is it exceptionally possible to waive electronic submission (Section 150 (8) of the German Fiscal Code - AO). You must apply for this at the responsible tax office.

Forms / Preprinted forms

The standard federal forms/forms such as, for example, for the income tax return, can be found in the form management system of the Federal Finance Administration.

On our homepage you will only find the special forms/forms/declarations for Baden-Württemberg.
