Reappointment as tax representative

The appointment as tax representative is no longer of fundamental importance, since the last examination procedures for the appointment as tax representative were carried out in 1984. In particular, applications for reappointment are likely to be considered.

Who should I contact?

The responsibility lies with the Chamber of Tax Consultants, in whose chamber district the applicant intends to establish the professional establishment.

This procedure can also be handled through a "point of single contact". The "Point of Single Contact" is a special service offered by the municipalities and the state for service providers.
