Apply for remission or reimbursement of tobacco tax

Description

You can apply for remission or reimbursement of tobacco tax if you are a

  • tax warehouse keeper of tobacco products or. you take tobacco products or substitutes for tobacco products into a tax warehouse or transport them under tax supervision to another member state of the European Union or export them under tax supervision.
  • you are a commercial importer of tobacco products or substitutes for tobacco products or a registered consignee of tobacco products that you have imported or received, destroy or denature under tax supervision.

If the tobacco tax has already been paid through the use of tax stamps, i.e. the tax stamps have already been affixed to the retail packs, the tax will only be waived or refunded if the tax stamps have been destroyed or invalidated under tax supervision and the contents of the packs are still complete.

The tax stamp debt can be waived or refunded if you

  • have returned to the main customs office in Bielefeld tax stamps that have not yet been invalidated, i.e. no invalidation mark has been printed on the tax stamps, or
  • have destroyed or invalidated canceled tax stamps under tax supervision and the tobacco tax has not yet been incurred.

If tax stamps are used, remission or reimbursement of the tax stamp debt will only be granted if you return tax stamps with a tax value of at least EUR 10 to the main customs office in Bielefeld or destroy or invalidate them under tax supervision.

The refund amount will be offset against any unpaid tax and tax stamp debt in the chronological order of the federal government's claims. If the refund amount exceeds the tax and tax stamp debt, the difference will be credited for later offsetting or paid out on request.
