Posted in Germany forum
I'm soon starting work in Germany, but for various reasons I probably can't get an Anmeldung, and therefore not a Tax ID.
I have confirmed that it is possible to work without a Tax ID, but I will automatically be taxed at class 6 (the highest class), paying about 10-20% more than I would normally (tax class 1).
Question: Can I get the difference back when filing the tax return at the end of the year?
(there's no need to remind me that I really should just get an anmeldung)
