The property tax in Brandenburg has previously been based on the property assessments of 1935. From 2025 the actual current property value will determine the actual tax calculation. The goal for this modification is to maintain the tax revenue at the current level and distribute the costs in a more socially equitable manner. Whether it will generally be more expensive for owners it is not yet possible to say if this will be the case. It will depend on the property, the building structures and the purpose of use.
