If the levies are not paid, the enforcement agency/court cashier initiates enforcement measures. As soon as a debt of a defaulting payer has to be collected by enforcement, the enforcement department speaks of an enforcement debtor.

These levies may be:

  1. Fiscal:
    Income tax, corporate income tax, trade tax, sales tax, real estate tax and property taxes, real estate transfer tax, inheritance tax, gift tax, racing betting and lottery tax, entertainment tax, dog tax, tourism tax (city tax), second home tax, as well as the associated ancillary services such as fees, penalty payments, interest or late payment surcharges (list not exhaustive).
  2. Non-tax:
    Fees, contributions or fines from other authorities such as the "Ordnungsamt"/"Bürgeramt", or court costs. The enforcement authority can also enforce levies from other municipalities, states or EU member states by way of administrative assistance. This also includes claims from Bremen's own enterprises (for example, Umweltbetrieb Bremen, KiTA Bremen, Bremen Music School, Bremen City Library, Bremen Adult Education Center, Bremen Workshop), broadcasting fees (formerly "GEZ") and professional chamber fees.
