Claim allowances for child over 18

Service Description

In the case of family benefit equalization, child benefit is usually paid during the year. After the end of the calendar year, the tax office checks, as part of an assessment for income tax, whether a child allowance and, in addition, an allowance for the child's care and education or training needs are to be deducted or whether child benefit is to be retained.

However, the allowances are always taken into account when calculating the solidarity surcharge and church tax.

The child allowance can be claimed for children who are related to you as a taxpayer within the first degree.

Under certain conditions, you can also apply for a child allowance for foster children.
Children over the age of 18 who have not yet reached the age of 25 can be taken into account under certain conditions. For disabled children, there is no age limit for eligibility under certain conditions.
After completion of initial vocational training/studies, children of full age are only taken into account if they are not in gainful employment.
