Familienbonus Plus (from 1.1.2019)

Post by morgenhund » Tue Jan 01, 2019 3:02 pm

The information and press release from the https://www.bmf.gv.at/aktuelles/Familienbonusplus.html contains basic information in German about the new Familienbonus Plus which should hopefully make a bit of a difference to parents, as it allowed up to EUR 1,500 p.a. to be claimed back per child (for up to 3 children). Feel free to share experiences here.


Vienna is like an Ikea sofa - you know you should upgrade, but why bother when it is this comfortable.

I'll be interested to hear how it works for the self-employed - in my (Angestellte) case I have had the E30 done so it should be reflected in my salary payment, and can confirm that it is possible to have it paid to me as sole earner while my wife is karenziert and the form allows payment to either one or both parents and to the one who receives Familienbeihilfe or the one who doesn't. Seemed almost too easy a submission though.
