Calculate and set wastewater levy


In Germany, a wastewater tax is levied on the discharge of wastewater (sewage and stormwater) into surface waters or groundwater on the basis of federal and supplementary state law. The wastewater levy is collected by the individual states.

Citizens – including small dischargers – and the indirectly discharging companies pay the wastewater charge only indirectly (via the wastewater fee or via the passing on by the municipality). Only those companies that have their own wastewater treatment plant and discharge wastewater pay a wastewater levy directly to the state.

Who should I contact?

The responsibility lies with the district and the district-free city.

Competent authority

  • As a rule, the lower water authorities are responsible for charging the water withdrawal fee: districts, independent and large independent cities, Hanover region
  • in certain cases, the Lower Saxony State Agency for Water Management, Coastal Protection and Nature Conservation (NLWKN) is responsible for collecting the water withdrawal fee

Requirements

Anyone who discharges wastewater into a body of water is liable for the levy.

Which documents are required?

Required documentation varies depending on the discharge requirement for wastewater and/or stormwater.

Possible required documents for wastewater:

  • Levy declaration for small dischargers
  • Declaration of monitoring values
  • Declaration of lower monitoring values as well as the resulting measurement results
  • For industrial dischargers: application for deduction of pre-pollution

Possible required documents for precipitation water:

  • Declaration of discharge for precipitation water

What are the fees?

For the discharge of wastewater, a fee must be paid to the respective federal state.

The amount of the levy depends on the amount of the determined number of harmful units (ZSE) and the levy rate to be applied.

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

The tax return must be submitted no later than 31 March of the year following the assessment period.

Processing duration

The processing time depends on the quality and volume of the applications and documents submitted.

Applications / forms

The designation and execution of the individual forms differs in the individual federal states. In general terms, there are the following declarations/forms.

  • Declaration for precipitation water
  • Declaration for small dischargers
  • Declaration of monitoring values (§ 6 Abs. 1 AbwAG)
  • Declaration of lower monitoring values (§ 4 Abs. 5 AbwAG)
  • For industrial dischargers: Application for deduction of pre-pollution (§ 4 Abs. 3 AbwAG)
