GEZ questionnaire comes by post: Anyone who does not answer is threatened by the bailiff
You should not ignore the letter from the GEZ. If the persons addressed do not react to the first letter, there is another reminder letter. If this is also ignored, the contribution service automatically registers the person concerned. The GEZ then assumes that the license fee has to be paid for the apartment in question. Even if you get feedback that no fee has been paid yet, you will be registered.
If no GEZ fee has been paid so far, this will also be calculated retroactively to the moving-in date. So there is a risk of additional payments. A retrospective registration will take place on January 1, 2020 at the earliest.
When comparing registration data, the following information is transmitted by the residents’ registration offices:
- family name
- First names under designation of the first name
- former name
- PhD degree
- Marital status
- day of birth
- Current and last address of main and secondary residences, including all available information on the location of the residence
- day of moving into the apartment
The clarification letters are to be sent from January 10, 2023. But that doesn’t all work out at the beginning of the year. until end of June 2023 all letters should have been sent.
