Fuel price relief: This is how drivers are relieved when refueling
In this way, the energy tax on fuel is reduced
This is what the energy price flat rate looks like
Motorists benefit indirectly from another measure: All employees and self-employed persons are to receive a one-off payment of 300 euros as an “energy price flat rate”. This support must be taxed as additional income. The government wants to pay out the energy money via the employer as soon as possible. Instead, freelancers receive a reduction on the income tax prepayment.
Similar to the Corona aid, families should receive additional support of 100 euros per child. And those who receive social assistance receive an additional one-off payment of 100 euros from the state.
Measures initially limited to three months
Important: The measures of the so-called energy cost relief only apply for the following three months after they come into force. It is not yet certain whether the trip to the summer holiday will benefit from the fuel price reduction. It is not yet clear when the reduction in energy tax will come into force.
