Working in Germany - Taxes

  1. Good afternoon,

    quick question. I currently work for the Federal Government as an RN for a Veterans Affairs Hospital. I really enjoy working there, but one of the reasons I took the position was that I wanted to eventually work in Germany for a while. I am hoping that already being a federal employee might help me when I apply for a job as a civilian working for the US in Germany.

    My question is taxes. If you work as a civilian in Germany, do you pay German taxes?

    Thanks for any info.

    Hmm, depends on, I think. So you are an american citizen and would go to Germany as part of the american forces?
    Or would you apply for residency in Germany and then try to get a job with the forces??
    You won't be double taxed, normally members of american facilities (american citizens) pay their american taxes and are exempt to pay german taxes.

    Best way to find out is to contact the admin/hr of the forces in Germany.
