What is a Kraftfahrzeugsteuerbescheid? Updated on July 27, 2023 By Nicolas Bouliane The Kraftfahrzeugsteuerbescheid tells you how much vehicle tax you owe. You get this letter by post once per year. Vehicle tax is paid automatically by direct debit authorisation (SEPA-Lastschriftmandat). You don’t need to do anything. If your bank details changed, contact the Hauptzollamt and tell them.
