As an intern, does someone also pay taxes from her/his salary?

Hi ayset, his depends on whether the internship is mandatory for studies or vocational training. Then you do not have to pay social security contributions. Otherwise you will have to pay social security if you're pay is more than 450euros a month. If you do not earn more than 9.984 euros a year and are doing a voluntary internship that pays more than 450euros monthly then you can receive the extra taxes back at the end of the year with the so called "Lohnsteuerjahresausgleich" Annual payroll adjustment. This should be done in the December payroll from your employer if he has more than 10 workers.
