500,000 people in Vienna do not declare tax

Half a million people in Vienna do not declare tax. The tax office is thus earning at least 220 Euros per person.

An employee assessment makes it possible for Austrians to get some money back from the tax office. Around 500,000 people would, however, not apply for this assessment, said Martin Saringer, tax expert of the Vienna Chamber of Labour to Radio Vienna. This would mean from 50 to 80 million Euros.

An employee assessment can be made quite easily and quickly with a form at the tax office or online. People who start their jobs (again), look for a change and apprentices will benefit from the assessment in particular as income tax is calculated as if the employee earned the same throughout the year. The employees get this margin back.

People who earned very little so that they did not have to pay any income tax can apply for the so-called "negative tax". This is a credit from the tax office of up to 110 Euros. If you are entitled to a commuter grant, the "negative tax" can increase up to 251 Euros.

According to the Chamber of Labour, the fear of additional payment is usually unfounded. If the employee assessment has been made voluntarily, it is sometimes even possible to withdraw it again in case of an additional payment.
