Road construction contributions; levying

Since 01.01.2018, no contributions have been levied in Bavaria to finance the improvement or renewal of local roads, restricted public roads, local thoroughfares and street lighting.



Road expansion contributions, similar to development contributions, could reach a sensitive level.

If the levying of contributions leads to particular hardship for the party liable for the contribution - even after the abolition of road expansion contributions as of December 31, 2017 - it is at the obligatory discretion of the municipalities to mitigate this in a socially acceptable manner by means of equitable measures, such as payment in installments, annuitization, deferral or remission. The person liable to pay the contribution can submit an application to his municipality.

The Free State of Bavaria has set up a hardship fund in Art. 19a KAG with a one-off sum of € 50 million to compensate proportionately for certain hardships caused by road expansion contributions levied in the period from January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2017. An independent commission, which is not bound by professional instructions, decided on the granting of benefits. An application for hardship compensation could only be submitted until December 31, 2019.
