business school, tax official, … idustrial engineering and management.
With this introduction, the next few lines will hopefully become more understandable!
The regular conversations betweeen us students (of course outside of lectures) were often about money. Who earns what amount, what benefits, etc. Of course someone HAD TO boast about his “mad” tax law knowledge while announcing that he will recover everything from the state and therefore (the mommy) diligently collects documents. What most of these smart “tax foxes” did not know: – some of them do not even pay any tax. And those who pay tax do not really know the rules themselves.
Technically, I have sworn off the tax office, but somehow that superficial knowledge disturbed me. But I did not want to interfere with their personal financial situation either. So I decided to hold a seminar on tax law on April 11, 2017 in the DHBW Bad Mergentheim
“Income tax 1x1 and tips for dual students”, was the name given to my seminar by the local course director.
The response was surprisingly positive: Of the 4 initially announced participants 42 appeared. But that was no problem at all. After a short small talk an approach to the facts was presented:
• how the tax works,
• from which incomeheight it is paid
• – and most importantly – how to get them back.
I guess in the end everyone was satisfied. The students have learned something and I do not have to listen to any “tax foxes” again. The only remaining questions is if any Trainees inside TecAlliance need tax counseling?
