I moved 2 months ago to Germany from Dubai for a new job. I am placed in tax class 1 (steuerklasse 1). I am married but because my wife was waiting for her long stay visa (she is non eu passport holder) I think that is ok.
But now her long stay visa is approved she will come to Germany next week to live with me. From several websites I understand I need (or can) change to a different tax class if your are married. My wife will not have a salary/job for at least this and next year. So to which tax class should I change and how to do this? Can this be done online? I saw couples in class 3 and 5 if there is a big difference between in the incomes of both partners but my wife will have 0 income.
Thanks in advance.
