German Income Tax Calculator with Visualization
If you're living in Germany, you know how important it is to keep track of your income tax obligations. Fortunately, there is now a tool available that can help you understand exactly how much you owe and how your income tax is calculated.
I came across this tool on Reddit under the following link and wanted to share it with others because I some similar german salary calculator, but this was far the most appealing for me.
The LohnTastik's salary calculator is a user-friendly tool that allows you to input your gross salary, tax class, and other relevant information to determine your net salary and total tax liability.
The calculator functionally is the same as any other german salary calculator but has a great UI and provides a great visual representation of the tax burden, showing how much of the salary is going towards different types of taxes, such as income tax, social security contributions, health insurance etc... Also there are several visual comparison of the gross salary to other employees in Germany.
At the very bottom left, there is a row of occupations with similar salaries to the one just calculated. Clicking on them lets the visitor delve deeper into the static intricacies of the German labor market.
I made comparison to other tools including the one release by the Bundesministerium der Finanzen and it gives the same results but with a far better user experience.
