Hi Guys,

I would like to know first hand what percent of my gross salary would I have to pay to the German IRS ? I have a proposal of 3000 euro per month gross – what will be my net salary per month?. Can someone sort this mystery for me? :) Some websites show me that at this rate it would come down to 1600 euros per month – is this true?

Thank you very much,

Gabriela

Maybe it would be better to contact an accountant familiar with German tax code? Or else maybe try posting on a forum specifically for European taxes.

Hey,

yes, 1600 can be true, the net salary depends on a lot of things, in Germany (and Austria) it is always aprox. 50-60% of the gross amount.

Try this website for calculation: http://www.nettolohn.de

Cheers

Thank you very much for your responses JamiGibbs and Blooming :) yeah, that’s what I thought (1600) but wanted to experience a first-hand opinion :) Oh well, they do have high taxes, but they also have some very cool things (one of the best health systems, etc)

It depends. If you have non-EU citizenship and got a work permit, you’ll pay only 20 – 30%. If you don’t need any permits and you have EU citizenship and just move to another EU country, taxes should be lower anyway. Passed these procedures 3 months ago
