Summary

This is a tax guide for all employed persons who want or need to file an income tax return (or: tax declaration) in Germany but do not speak much German. It explains the basics of German tax law and guides you through the most important questions and tax forms:

- Where do I file an income tax return (Steuererklärung)?
- What deadlines do I need to know regarding my tax return?
- Which tax office (Finanzamt) do I have to submit my tax return to?
- May I send a German tax return by email?
- Which expenses are deductible in a tax return?
- Are there lump sums (Pauschbeträge) or do I have to calculate every little bit?
- What do all these weird words in the tax forms mean?
- What do I need may wage tax certificate (Lohnsteuerbescheinigung) for?
- What do tax payers mean when they talk about the "Mantelbogen"?
- What the heck is "Elster", if not a magpie?
- How do I fill in the Annex N?
- Is there a chance for a tax refund?
- …And so much more!It's so much easier than you think!
Even for native speakers, German tax law sometimes seems rather incomprehensible. But then, most of the time, it's not as complicated as you may have feared! Many tax forms are actually quite self-explanatory.
Whether you do your tax return yourself or seek professional advice: This guide about filing a tax return in Germany will help you!
Though you may speak little or no German, you can basically do your tax return yourself. But even if you use the services of a tax advisor (Steuerberater) or go to an income tax help association (Lohnsteuerhilfeverein), the following applies: only if you know the basics of German tax law you can point out important facts to your advisor that may be unusual for other taxpayers.

    Think back to when you started your business, or to the questions that crossed your mind when you started thinking about going into business for yourself. You probably had a good idea of the product or service that you wanted to offer; and how much you were going to make from the onset. You probably had your mind on the money, without paying too much attention to just how that money was going to be made. That is where a business model proves to be invaluable. It is a clear statement of how your business operates in the economic and social context, in order to turn a profit. This forms an integral part of your overall business strategy, and should form the basic description of how your business creates, delivers and captures value in the context of the economic, social and cultural environment in which it operates. This book explains all you need to know on business model development.

    In Googled, esteemed media writer and critic Ken Auletta uses the story of Google's rise to explore the inner workings of the company and the future of the media at large. Although Google has often been secretive, this book is based on the most extensive cooperation ever granted a journalist, including access to closed-door meetings and interviews with founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, CEO Eric Schmidt, and some 150 present and former employees. Inside the Google campus, Auletta finds a culture driven by brilliant engineers in which even the most basic ways of doing things are questioned. His reporting shines light on how Google has been so hugely successful-and why it could slip. On one hand, Auletta reveals how the company has innovated, from Gmail, Google Maps, and Google Earth to YouTube, search, and other seminal programs. On the other, he charts its conflicts: the tension between massive growth and its mandate of "Don't be evil"; the limitations of a belief that mathematical algorithms always provide correct answers; and the collisions of Google engineers who want more data with citizens worried about privacy.  More than a comprehensive study of media's most powerful digital company, Googled is also a lesson in new media truths. Pairing Auletta's unmatched analysis with vivid details and rich anecdotes, it shows how the Google wave grew, how it threatens to drown media institutions once considered impregnable-and where it is now taking us all.
