1. Settle debts
Were you or are you a student? Pay back part of the rates of your student loan or Bafög. You can benefit doubly: Even if you cannot deduct the repayments themselves, you can still claim the interest paid next year.
2. Dental prosthesis
A broken tooth, for which dental prosthesis is due, can already cause high costs. So put some money aside long before a tooth wobbles. The best way is in the form of supplementary dental insurance. The contributions can be claimed for tax purposes in the following years.
3. Renovation of the apartment
Smaller and larger renovation and maintenance projects are part of everyday life. Pay e.g. with the refund the craftsman wage. This „household near service“ is deductible in the following year including the resulting value added tax.
