Have address and personal data changed

Changes to registration data (e.g. marriage, birth of a child) must still be reported to the relevant municipality (registry office or registration office). These automatically send the changes to the Federal Central Tax Office (BZSt). If these changes affect your electronic wage tax deduction characteristics (ELStAM) (e.g. change in tax class or child allowance), they will be made available to your employer electronically for retrieval.

Several weeks may pass before the changed ELStAM are taken into account in your payroll.

Your employer can then also apply the changes retroactively and correct the salary statements made in the meantime.

Who should I contact?

The changes are received and processed by the responsible municipality (registry office or registration office).



Which documents are required?

  • Identity card or passport
  • corresponding proof of the change that has occurred in the original (e.g. marriage certificate, birth certificate of the child)

What are the fees?

Fees may apply. Please contact the responsible office.

What deadlines do I have to pay attention to?

Deadlines may have to be observed. Please contact the responsible office.

You may find further information on the website of the responsible office.
