Important information for the property tax return

For the new property tax, the tax office must revalue all properties in Baden-Württemberg as of January 1, 2022. Owners must submit a complete property tax return for this purpose. They are required to do so by law. The information letters sent to all private owners and the data bundled on this website provide support for submitting the declaration. The deadline for submitting returns for real property (real property tax B) is January 31, 2023.

Private owners of agricultural and forestry property (property tax A) will receive an information letter from the tax office at the beginning of January 2023. This also includes land used for agricultural purposes, e.g. leased or owner-occupied fields, meadows and orchards. Here, the reminder for the levy will not be sent until the second quarter of 2023. A submission by March 31, 2023 is therefore sufficient for real estate tax A.

The property tax return must always be submitted electronically. This can be done, for example, via"My ELSTER ". The program guides you through the declaration step by step. If incorrect entries are made, "My ELSTER" points this out directly. Assistance is provided by the ELSTER instructions for completing the declaration.

The declaration is to be based on the circumstances at the main assessment date of January 1, 2022. In the case of a sale from 2022 onwards, the person who was the owner of the real estate on the reference date of January 1, 2022 is obliged to submit the declaration to the tax office. Further explanations can be found in the flyer "Change of ownership of real estate after 01.01.2022".
