Income tax for foreign artists?

Beitragvon MyFestival » Mo 13. Apr 2015, 14:45

Hey! I am organizing a small performing arts festival in Germany this summer. Every artist or group of artists receives a small fee for their performance (€ 100 - € 500) - many of the artists come from abroad. I heard that the fee of the non-German artists is taxable in Germany and that I - as the organizer - have to pay "Ausländersteuer", foreigner tax. Is that true? Does that apply to artists based in the EU and outside the EU alike?

Yes it applies to you. But there are some exceptions:
If your Artists get 250 or less per performance they are free of Ausländersteuer. But if they get more (e.g. 300 euros/show), you have to pay the Ausländersteuer for the whole fee.
