The Federal Fiscal Court has referred to the Federal Constitutional Court the question of whether it is compatible with the Constitution that losses from the sale of shares may only be offset against gains from the sale of shares and not against other positive income from capital assets. The decision of the Federal Constitutional Court is likely to be eagerly awaited by many.
In another decision, the Federal Fiscal Court for the first time defined precise calculation parameters for determining double taxation of pensions, thus highlighting the threat of double taxation for future generations of pensioners.
In addition, the Federal Fiscal Court ruled that capital income from a fraudulent Ponzi scheme is in principle no longer to be taken as a basis for income tax assessment. The settlement effect also applies if the capital gains tax has been withheld by the debtor of the capital income but not declared to the tax office and paid over to it.
