A widow whose husband was employed in Germany now lives in SA. She receives her late husband's pension. Germany want to back date tax on her pension paid to her in SA - back to 2006.
We are aware that there is no tax in SA on foreign pensions. Is it fair then to tell the German authorities that the widow taxpayer IS registered in SA for tax, so they must NOT tax the pension at source ?.
All the articles talk about no tax in SA on these pensions but don't seem to address the issue of whether the pension must be taxed first in Germany !

Unfortunately we cannot advise on the German tax situations on these transactions as we only deal in South African tax matters.
