Electronic wage tax deduction characteristics blocking

In the procedure for creating and applying the electronic wage tax deduction characteristics (ELStAM), you can contact the competent authority

  • designate one or more employers who are entitled to retrieve your ELStAM (retrieval authorization, "positive list"),
  • exclude certain employers from the retrieval authorization (retrieval block, "negative list") or
  • exclude all employers from retrieval ("full blocking")

You are not obliged to make a determination for ELStAM retrieval. In principle, the ELStAM will be made available electronically to your employer for the duration of the employment relationship.

Employers are notified of blockings, who then have to determine the income tax according to tax class VI.

Who should I contact?

The responsibility lies with the tax office responsible for you.

Which documents are required?

The blocking takes place on written request.

In the form management system of the Federal Finance Administration , the appropriate application form "Applications for electronic wage tax deduction characteristics – ELStAM -" can be used in the "Tax forms" area under "Wage tax (employees)".

Please contact the competent authority.

What are the fees?

There are no fees.

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

Deadlines may have to be met. Please contact the competent authority.
