How much depends on several factors.

A sample invoice.

Munich/Berlin – 5.9 million pensioners will have to pay taxes in 2023.

Due to the increase in pensions in July, 87,000 retirees will be subject to tax this year, as the


reports from a response from the Federal Ministry of Finance to a left-wing request.

This is because they exceed the basic allowance by increasing 3.53 percent (West) and 4.25 percent (East).

This will be 10,908 euros per year in 2023.

Pension: Tax amount depends on many factors

So if your annual gross pension is higher than this basic allowance, you have to submit a tax return.

Whether or not you actually have to pay taxes depends on the amount of your pension and the year in which you retire.

For example, someone who retired in 2020 has a taxable pension portion of 80 percent.

In our sample calculation, we used a gross pension amount of EUR 1,800 per month.

For example, someone who retired in 2020 and receives an annual pension of EUR 21,600 has a taxable portion of their pension of EUR 17,280.

How much tax you ultimately have to pay is very individual.

Pension and taxes: The basic allowance does not have to be taxed

What is important, however, is that the pension allowance always remains the same.

This is a fixed euro amount that is set at the beginning of the pension.

This will not change with future pension adjustments.

In the sample case mentioned above, this allowance would be 4,320 euros, i.e. 20 percent of the annual gross pension.

In addition, the basic allowance of 10,908 euros also applies - i.e. the amount that does not have to be taxed because it represents the minimum subsistence level.

In our example, the taxable amount would be 6372 euros.

This figure results from the taxable portion of the pension minus the annual basic allowance.
