Service Description

The Künstlersozialkasse reports the information required by law to the Bundeszentralamt für Steuern (Federal Central Tax Office). You will automatically receive a certificate of the reported data for the respective previous year every year in March.

If you also require a certificate for the tax office, you can request a separate tax office certificate for the relevant year from the Künstlersozialkasse.

The payments to be taken into account depend on the year of payment and not on the period for which the payments were made.


Process flow

Basically:

  • You will automatically receive the certificate on the data reported to the Federal Central Tax Office. You therefore do not need to submit an application.
  • You will receive the certificate in March of each year for the contributions/allowances paid in the previous year.

If you need a certificate for the tax office before then, you can request a separate tax office certificate online, by mail or by phone from the Künstlersozialkasse.
