Tax rates on land ownership

Hi,

Can someone provide any information on taxes on land ownership (Grundstueck)? In particular, I am curious to know if landownership have something equivalent of "Eigenmeitwert" associated with house/flat ownership?

Yes, there is an equivalent. I think if you own forest land there is some equivalent income from that and that you pay whether you use the forest commercially or not.

With other types of land I'm not sure.

But as always, don't take tax advice from the EF. Talk to your local tax office. In my experience they have always been friendly and advised me in the best possible way. They have in the past even shown me ways of paying less tax in a situation where I was pretty sure there was no way of paying less. So these guys are 100% on your side and are not going to try and catch you out or make you pay more.
