Relief from taxes and social security contributions

Families are to be relieved financially quickly and noticeably in the energy crisis. To this end, the German government has launched relief packages and tax relief.

High inflation and rising prices in the wake of Russia's war of aggression on Ukraine have made life significantly more expensive. Government measures provide financial security so that people can continue to afford to live. Many measures have a direct impact on net wages.
