Your comprehensive relief with our property tax software as a Professional Managed Service
On December 2, 2019, the Property Tax Reform Act was announced in the Federal Law Gazette I. This was just in time, as the Federal Constitutional Court had previously ruled that the unit value determination is unconstitutional as a basis for property tax assessments. The law applies to all owners of domestic real estate and agricultural and forestry assets.

Your smart solution for the property tax
You would like to take over the entire process in-house with your own resources? No problem: Software-as-a-Service makes it possible!
How does data collection/data entry work? What can an efficient declaration process look like? How can a large number of assessment notices be reviewed automatically? Our technological platform, the PwC Property Tax App, provides you with solutions. It is your technological sparring partner for mapping the entire property tax compliance process.
Module 1: Base – Data management and revaluation
Using an Excel file, you import your (already) digitised data into the data management module with one click. The data was not complete? You can easily make subsequent manual additions in the tool. The integrated document management system is also available for storing and filing the "back-up material" (e.g. tax-relevant documents or technical documents.
Once all the necessary property-specific data has been recorded, the publicly available and legally determined data is automatically complemented and the revaluation of the properties can be initiated.
Module 2: Reporting – Declaration
Based on the data stored for the revaluation, the declaration forms are filled in automatically. The data is transmitted to the responsible tax authority via the ELSTER interface (ERiC) or, if required, via ELSTEROnline. Do you have a 4-eyes principle in-house or do you have to observe other individual steps before data transmission? No problem. In such a case the integrated release process provides support, which can be adapted to your specific requirements without much effort.
Module 3: Assessment – Review of assessments
Does the assessment correspond to the submitted declaration? Our assessment module answers this question as soon as the assessment notices - presumably still issued in paper form for the time being - are stored (as a scan) in the Property Tax App. Thanks to the automatic comparison of the assessment data with the declaration data and the integrated dashboard with upcoming deadlines, you have all the information you need for an efficient and transparent assessment review and appeal process at your hand.
Module 4: Appeals
Do you disagree with the data from your assessment? With our property tax solution, you have the opportunity to easily and seamlessly capture a variety of appeals and electronically submit them to the relevant tax authorities. Here, we also provide you with maximum convenience through our integrated deadline management and the four-eye principle for internal processes. Additionally, you will have an efficient and user-friendly representation of your communication with the tax administration.
