What is the “Rundfunkbeitrag” (television and radio licence fee)? Do I have to pay it? (Germany Student)
The “Rundfunkbeitrag” is the fee that is incurred for the use of public service broadcasting.
Currently, the fee is 17,50 € per month. This is fixed until 2019. From 2020 on the fee could be raised.
For citizens of full age applies: an apartment - a fee.
Can I be exempted from the television and radio licence fee?
