I've been working in Germany since September 14, 2017. I was informed about the Kichensteuer (Church tax) a few days after arriving. Then I had to get my Kirchenaustritt that declares that I'm leaving my church, thus I won't pay taxes to the church any longer.
I was said the paperwork will take about 2 months, and after that, the tax would be removed. It's February 3, and I got charged with tax the last month.
What is needed to get rid of this tax?
