Spouse splitting – is that still contemporary?

The Spouse Splitting 1016 has been criticized for years, many women can not use the tax advantage. Reina Becker fights for a system based on how families really are today.

[c-16] Fortunately, Reina Becker did not suspect what kind of fight she would face when she 200, two years after her husband's death, sat in disbelief in front of the computer. About Even when she counted child benefit, it was almost () the greater the tax savings

11040446 “At first, I thought I made a mistake entering data into the control program,” she says. But everything was right. The reason why the state now wanted more money:

As a widow, Becker no longer benefited from spouse splitting.

1017 For the better earner in the relationship – usually it is the man – so often a much cheaper tax rate.

But the scheme also promotes the traditional sole earners marriage: the man goes to work, the wife stays at home. In addition: Neither unmarried couples nor single parents can use the Splitting.

Tax benefit only for married couples () tax advantage Her husband and she had finally benefited from it: As a self-employed tax consultant Becker was the main earner of the family, her husband was already retired. “I had not thought about the dimensions until then.”

The 56 – year-old is sitting at the conference table of her office in Westerstede, Lower Saxony, telling of the comparative calculation she made that night eleven years ago and which made her stunned: 2562383102 If her husband were still alive and had only one child, she would save several thousand euros a year in taxes . Widowed and single parent with two children, however, she will be almost (*) (*) pay more taxes in euros “This is a screaming injustice” 93392 “Single parents not only have a hard day and reduced income opportunities,” she says. “Depending on the number of children, they also have much higher expenses than a married couple with a child, and then also the tax burden should be higher?” This is a screaming injustice. “

and correspondence. Reina Becker has brought an action before the Finanzgericht and the Bundesfinanzhof, and has even filed a complaint with the Federal Constitutional Court. Lawful in their own right, but also felt for all the single parents, who have neither the know-how, nor are as privileged as they are. Becker earns better than most single parents, and her parents have been around for the daughters for years, today (*) and 26 years old, taken care of.

1004 but drives women into financial dependence. ” Because the more the woman earns, the more the splitting advantage melts. “I know the feeling of being torn between work and family,” says Becker. “Saying goodbye to your job or no longer being paid into social insurance as a low-income earner is fatal, but what if the marriage does not last, the partner dies or does not earn anything anymore?” [a] * reduce the freedom and autonomy of women and create an enormous dependence. Scientific studies have shown that the scheme reduces the average working time of women () hours per year. And: You just do not take into account that family models are much more colorful today.

Why the state sticks to the regulation 90 “Round (*) billions of euros would be available to the state more, if we – as well as many other countries handle – to a separate investment, but at least the second basic allowance for the non-earning partner, “says the DIW researcher Stefan Bach. “The extra revenue could benefit families and children or finance tax cuts for all.” 1008 Of course, people who are politically involved make things tricky for politics, “says Bach.

Becker has learned with what power the state adheres to the regulation. So far, the courts have let them flash off. “There are still too many judges of the old generation, but that will be different in a few years,” she believes. At any rate, giving up is not my cup of tea, and my sense of wrongdoing is too great for that. ” The good: So far, she has only her tax return () For the subsequent years, she has objected and could again go to court. At any time.
