Welcome Message from the Minister of Finance of the State of Hessen

Dear visitors of our website,
Ladies and gentlemen,

Are you relocating from abroad to the beautiful State of Hessen or to the banking city of Frankfurt? Do you have any initial questions or income tax issues on which you need clarification or that you want to discuss - and in English? Then you have come to the right place!

On this website, you will find initial information on income tax in Germany. Furthermore, we provide information on working and living in Germany and Hessen as well as on the State of Hessen’s revenue administration.

Our team of qualified experts will be available for any tax-related question you may have. Please contact us either by telephone or via Email. There is also an option to visit the Finanzservicestelle / Taxpayer Service Centre at the local tax office Frankfurt am Main IV. Meet our experts who are ready to deal with enquiries and requests face-to-face. For details, please refer to this website.

Strong commitment to taxpayer service, a culture of working together to serve citizens and taxpayers as well as ensuring a fair and comprehensible tax enforcement are key characteristics of the way we work at the local tax offices throughout the State of Hessen.

I very cordially invite you to make use of the special services we provide and to meet us in person.
We look forward to seeing you in Hessen!

Best wishes,

Dr. Thomas Schäfer
Minister of Finance of the State of Hessen
