(BMF, Letter from 21.07.2021, Az. IV C 5 – S2353/20/1004:002, Abruf-Nr. 223718)

These new values also apply retroactively. If the employer has reimbursed the lump sums for other relocation expenses in the amount of the tax lump sums, he can pay the increase amounts tax-free in arrears. If the employer has reimbursed higher lump sums than the tax lump sums, it may take the retroactive increase in the lump sums into account in the salary statements

Important: These options can only be implemented if the employer has not yet transmitted the electronic income tax statement. If a correction is no longer possible or if the employer refrains from a recalculation due to the insignificance of the amounts, the employee is left with the approach via the 2021 income tax assessment. Here, the employee can then reduce the taxable gross salary by the over-taxed portion of the lump sum.
