As an employee, you can claim bank account fees as income-related expenses for tax purposes. The legislator has set a flat rate for this, with which you can deduct 16 euros per year. As a rule, the tax office recognises this lump sum without proof.
However, costs for work-related bank transfers or salary receipts that exceed the flat rate must be documented. For this purpose, the actual, work-related account fees must be determined and proven, for example by submitting account statements.
How do I enter bank account fees in the Taxfix app?
If you indicate in the "Intro questions" category that you have worked and had salary, the Taxfix app automatically takes into account the lump sum of 16 euros for account fees. You do not need to enter any further costs or details.
Please note that our app does not ask for higher costs for account fees.
