How much does DLG membership cost?
Annual membership fees are subject to a sliding scale and depend upon your total gross annual income. Therefore, employees with lower incomes pay lower fees.

How does DLG e.V. help you?
As a payroll tax assistance association, we are a self-help institution of employees. The Association does not have any commercial objectives. The principle of solidarity is the most important thing: members help members. Our services are provided to members free of charge. This means that, apart from an annual fee and a one-off joining fee, DLG e.V. will not charge you anything else. Therefore, once you are a member, you have an unlimited right to all the consulting services provided by the Association concerning your tax issues. We are expressly forbidden to charge any fee for our assistance. Hence, the advantage for you is that your membership fees pay for all the assistance provided by the Association. For instance: You can have your tax returns drawn up, to a greater or lesser extent. In addition to this service, even at a later date if necessary, you can also produce an application for payroll tax relief or for own home allowance without incurring any additional fees or expenses.
In what way is the Association different from a tax consultant?
Unlike a tax consultant, who has to invoice for each consulting service according to the fee scale for tax consultants, a payroll tax assistance association must not establish any link between either the fee obligation or the fee sum payable, on the one hand, and the association’s services, on the other.
