HelloPersonal income tax is imposed on the income of individuals, who are resident in Germany or have their normal place of abode there, have full income tax liability.The personal income tax from income from employed work and from capital income paid the employers or the banks, when the earnings are paid out (the tax is immediately transferred to the tax authorities every month). If the $100,000 is a payment for services and the individual is a tax resident of Germany the tax is on the money when earned.The transfer of money is not a taxable event.Capital can be moved in and out of Germany without any restrictions. However, amounts over EUR 12,500, or equivalent payments with valuables, must be reported to the German Central Bank (Bundesbank). These reports are for statistical purposes only. Forms can be obtained from the Bundesbank.In 2015 the Germany tax rates for an individual are 14% - 45%.
