Greenhouse reduction rate: save and donate – How To Cars
Those who drive their own electric car can look forward to cash bonuses of up to 350 euros per registered vehicle with the so-called greenhouse gas reduction quota (GHG quota). However, the maximum amount is taxable, because it is an “other income” for tax purposes.
However, anyone who stays below the exemption limit of 256 euros per calendar year according to § 22 III EStG does not have to pay any taxes. GHG providers such as Emobia have taken advantage of this and offer a reduced GHG premium of a maximum of 255 euros. Interesting: If you don’t want to let the remaining GHG amount of up to 95 euros go unused, you can donate it to a good cause.
Various portals such as Jucify, Smartificate or Geld für eAuto donate the difference (e.g. 20 euros) to the aid organizations that are currently working on various projects in Ukraine. Anyone who would like to donate their entire GHG premium directly to emergency aid for Ukraine can do so, for example, with the Deutschland Hilft campaign.
