Apply for a housing construction premium


Every home loan saver aged 16 and over receives the home building premium as long as their taxable income does not exceed a certain limit.
In order to receive the housing construction premium, you must make regular payments into a building society savings contract.
The savings amount must be at least 50 euros per year.
You receive 10% of the contributions paid in during the year as a housing construction premium.
You should spend your subsidized savings for "residential purposes". For example, you can use it to build or buy a house or a condominium.
If you do not use your credit balance for a property, you will have to pay back the housing subsidy.

You must be subject to unlimited tax liability in Germany and have reached the age of 16.
A housing construction premium is granted if you make expenses eligible for a premium of at least 50 euros per year and do not exceed certain income limits.

Application for housing construction premium

(Details from your building society contract - such as the contract or building society number, identification number, tax assessment notice for the application year)

Application: annually up to two years after the end of the savings year

The tax authorities decide on the granting of the housing construction premium after the two-year submission deadline.

Forms: Application for housing construction premium
Online procedure possible: yes
Written form required: no
Personal appearance required: no

You will receive the application form for the housing construction premium each year together with your account statement from your building society.
You then complete the form and return it to them.

The building society will determine the housing construction premium based on the information you provide, subject to a later review by the tax authorities, and will inform you of the result. Unfounded applications for housing construction premiums will be rejected by the building society itself.

You can also apply for the premium two years retrospectively - after the end of the savings year.

The income limits are checked automatically by your local tax office.

As part of a data comparison, it is checked whether the housing construction premium has been set at various building societies in excess of the statutory maximum amounts. The tax office also checks whether the income limits have been exceeded, whether a housing construction premium has been set for capital-forming benefits even though there is an entitlement to an employee savings allowance and whether the remaining expenses per building society are less than €50 in the case of an entitlement to an employee savings allowance.
The building society will be informed electronically if the tax office's review requires a change to the calculated housing construction premium.
As soon as your building society contract has been allocated and proof of residential use has been provided, your premiums will be paid directly into your building society account.
The building society is responsible for reclaiming any incorrectly granted housing construction premiums.
