Second residence property tax
If you are aiming at registering a secondary residence please be aware of the fact that the city of Dresden has been raising a so-called Second Residence Property Tax since 01.01.2006. The council of the city of Dresden decided upon the "Satzung über die Erhebung einer Zweitwohnsitzsteuer in der Landeshauptstadt Dresden (Zweitwohnungssteuersatzung)" on 24.02.2005 (published in the Dresden official register no. 12/2006, p.9).
After registering a secondary residence the tax office will be informed by registry office. After that you will get a letter from tax office with the "Erklärung zur Zweitwohnungssteuer" (Official statement about the Second Residence Property Tax). All tenants of rooms in our student halls who have received such a letter are kindly asked to come to the Studentenwerk, department of accommodation with the document at hand. In our office no. 105, 108 or 115 you will be given the "Bescheinigung über die Bemessungsgrundlage zur Zweitwohnungssteuer" (certificate concerning the base for the Second Residence Property Tax). It is absolutely necessary to attach this document to the official statement sent to you by the tax office.
You may also request the certificate by e-mail. You will then receive the document by post. Please send an e-mail to:
