what is TVL 13 (3/4) worth? This is related to Germany salary distribution. I was wondering if this is tax is already deducted or from that salary you will also have deduct the taxes. I found some websites that transform this number but they were in 2011.

    See the linked question and associated answers, particularly the Öffentliche Dienst website. Basically, you receive 75% of the stated gross income for the given class, and your taxes are scaled down accordingly. That means you should receive not less than 75% of the corresponding net income (Netto), since income taxes in Germany are progessive. (In fact, the link will let you determine the fraction of the value by using the "Arbeitszeit" field: enter a number less than 100% if you're receiving less than a full TV-L.) – aeismail May 31 '15 at 17:10
  • (Please note that the link is not opening) Concerning your answer, it is the taxes that I don't understand. I don't get how much will the taxes affect the salary. Say we multiplied the salary listed in the "website that you linked" by 0.75, we get a certain number x, my question, how does this x get affected by the taxes? @aeismail – user35267 May 31 '15 at 17:34

    The link has been fixed—and you should check it out. The website shows you all of the relevant deductions from your salary. When you make less, the corresponding taxes will adjust accordingly, since they're based on a percentage of the total income you actually receive. – aeismail May 31 '15 at 17:39
  • Thank you for fixing the link, so in Entgeltgruppe I put "E 13" and not "E 13 UE", in Stufe I put "1" because it is my first year as a researcher. In Arbeitszeit I put 75%. But I don't know what to put in "Zusatzversorgung" and "Lohnsteuerklasse"? Also I want to make sure is the final answer calculated at last with taxes automatically deducted? Thank you @aeismail – user35267 May 31 '15 at 19:08
  • You can essentially leave those alone (Lohnsteuerklasse I, zero Zusatzversorgung). The result (Netto bleiben) will then give you a baseline take-home pay. – aeismail May 31 '15 at 19:49
