Pay property tax


Anyone who owns real estate is subject to property tax. In contrast to the real estate transfer tax, which is only incurred once when buying a property, you have to pay the property tax annually.

A distinction is made between

  • Property tax A for agricultural and forestry enterprises, pieceholdings and
  • Property tax B for all other land.

Due date of property tax:
The property tax is set for the calendar year and is payable in 4 installments on the following dates:

- February 15

- 15 May

- August 15

- November 15

Note: The full annual amount can also be paid at once on July 1st. For this purpose, a separate application is necessary.

The tax office in whose district the property is located is responsible for issuing the standard value assessment.
You can find out the tax office responsible for you below.

The municipality in which the property is located is responsible for issuing the property tax assessment and collecting the property tax.

The competent tax office must first determine the unit value of the property in accordance with the Valuation Act. The unit value forms the basis for the tax measurement amount. The municipality decides on the levy rate with the budget statute and issues the property tax assessment. The tax measurement amount multiplied by the levy rate constitutes the tax payable. If there is no standard value assessment from the tax office, the substitute assessment applies.

When selling a property, the tax office regularly redefines the property tax measurement amount for the purchaser. This happens on January 1 of the year following the change of ownership. Only then will the property tax be set against the new owner and you will be relieved. This also applies if the owner of a building changes on foreign land (for example, a garage or a holiday home).

All agreements made in your purchase contract for the assumption of payment obligations by the purchaser of the property are private law regulations and do not affect the payment of property tax.

Certain properties are exempt from property tax (e.B. land owned by religious societies and also real estate used for the purposes of a hospital).
