View Electronic Wage Tax Deduction Characteristics (ELStAM)


Your current electronic payroll tax characteristics (ELStAM) are shown in every payslip. In addition, you have the option at any time to view the data electronically via the online tax office "ELSTER" or to request a written notification from your competent office.

A one-time registration is required for the electronic retrieval of the electronic wage tax deduction characteristics in the online tax office "ELSTER". For this you need your tax identification number and an e-mail address.

The financial offices are responsible for changes to the wage tax deduction characteristics.
