Leuchtmittelsteuer

Leuchtmittelsteuer is a tax that was levied in Germany on light bulbs until the end of 1992.

Originally there was a tax on candle wax, but this was “modernised” at the beginning of the 20th Century.

The tax was discontinued as part of measures to harmonise taxes within the EU.
