What about the obligation to retain taxpayers' tax deduction cards?

This obligation no longer applies under the new electronic tax deduction card scheme. Section 5-1-11 of the Tax Payment Regulation concerning employers' processing of tax deduction cards, including the obligation to obtain tax deduction cards, has been rescinded. The purpose of this provision – that the individual employee should not be able to use the main part of the tax deduction card with two employers – no longer applies.

(The retention obligation formerly ensued from Section 5-1-11 (6): Tax deduction cards which the employer has at the end of the income year must be retained for at least one further year).
