Wage tax; registration by the employer
The employer must withhold and pay the wage tax.
Wage tax is a so-called direct tax. The debtor of the tax is the employee. However, the employer must calculate the wage tax and withhold it from the gross salary each time he/she pays the salary.
The wage tax withheld by the employer, in addition to the church tax and the solidarity surcharge, must be declared and paid by the employer to the company tax office by the tenth day after the end of the declaration period at the latest. The wage tax declaration must be transmitted electronically (ELSTER) to the tax offices in accordance with the officially prescribed data record.
The employer is liable for the correct withholding and payment of wage tax.
