Submit a change to the personal data for the electronic payroll tax deduction characteristics


Changes to data under registration law (e.g. marriage, birth of a child) must still be communicated to the responsible municipality (registry office or registration authority). They automatically send the changes to the Federal Central Tax Office (BZSt). If these changes have an impact on your electronic income tax deduction characteristics (ELStAM) (e.g. change of tax class or child allowance), they will be made available to your employer electronically for retrieval.

It may take several weeks for the amended ELStAM to be taken into account in your payroll.

Your employer can then apply the changes retroactively and correct the pay slips made in the meantime.

  • Identity card or passport
  • Corresponding proof of the change in the original (e.g. marriage certificate, birth certificate of the child)

Fees may apply. Please contact the relevant authority.

Deadlines may have to be observed. Please contact the competent authority.

The changes are received and processed by the responsible municipality (registry office or registration authority).
