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 submission deadline for real property (real property tax B) is October 31, 2022.

The info letters for agricultural and forestry businesses (property tax A) will be sent out later. In these cases, you can wait to submit the assessment return until you receive the letter.

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".

Answers to the most frequently asked questions about the property tax reform are provided in the FAQ. The tax chatbot and the tax offices can help with questions about filing returns.

In addition, a flyer with the most important information is available at local tax offices.
