Re: Normal tax bill significantly more than withholding tax

Had it made professionally. The final tax is 2K more than the quellensteuer was. Almost all of the viable deductions were automatically added by the program by default.
In the end, the deductions are:

780 public transportation
700 bike to work pauschal
3200 food at work pauschal
3200 work related expenses pauschal (was included by default)
500 training cost pauschal (was included by default)
3200 health insurance
2600 insurance pauschal (was included by default)

I added the healthcare costs (dentist + franchise) to see how it's done, but you can forget about that deduction. It's only considered if it's more than 5%. So you have to do a more complex tax return to include it, and it will almost always be ignored.
