Simply holding a profit-generating organisation or company does not make you money per definition..

My apologies, I didn’t read the article

In May 2006, the Magazine The Economist estimated that the foundation was worth US$36 billion, making it the world’s wealthiest – more than the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. In the same article, The Economist alleged that INGKA uses the foundation structure for corporate tax-avoidance and anti-takeover protection scheme for IKEA .[1]

No Problem :)

But we are going Off Topic…

Myself didn’t think about taxes here in germany… Well, first i have to earn here some bucks :D

BTW , if you freelance from time to time, do you have to pay taxes? If you just create websites for fun & some times… Like 1000€ in the whole year.

Ask your local tax service office.
