Property tax in Germany unconstitutional

The German Federal Constitutional Court hat announced his decision on the valuation of property tax on April 10, 2018. Therefore the actual tax rules for property tax in the Western German states are not in line with the constitution since at least 2002. The court advised the legislator to implement new rules until the end of 2019. The old tax rules will last an additional five years but not longer as December 31, 2024..
