Apply for tax number for insurance tax or fire protection tax


The Federal Central Tax Office (BZSt) is responsible for the administration of insurance and fire protection tax. Insurance tax and fire protection tax are registration taxes. The company or person who has to pay the tax has to calculate it himself, declare it and pay it to the BZSt.

In the case of insurance tax, the state taxes premium or contribution payments from insurance contracts. The person liable to pay the insurance tax is the policyholder. However, the insurer must declare and pay the insurance tax.

In the case of the fire insurance tax, the state taxes the receipt of the insurance premium for fire insurance, residential building insurance or household insurance. Here, the insurer is the tax debtor and must declare and pay the tax.

You need a tax number to pay the insurance and fire protection tax. You can apply for the tax number at the BZSt.
