Steuer-Abzocke bei Alkohol und Sex: Staat stellt Parkautomaten für Prostituierte auf - Steuern - FOCUS Online - Nachrichten

The one that received most attention was "parking-meter for prostitutes" used in Bonn. The "girls" have to pay E 6 to get a ticket to work in a particular area from 20:15 until 06:00. Sells about 50,000 tickets per year.

P.S. It also says that the salt tax and lighting-tax were abolished in 1993 as part of EU tax-harmonisation, so don't ask "What did the EU ever do for us (or the Germans ) ? O.K. ?

P.P.S. I just remembered that the German government is abolishing the radio/TV licence and replacing it with a radio/TV contribution that every household has to pay ( except deaf AND blind ) Cost E 18per month

Just like in Britain, people say that the state channels are massively wasteful and somewhat corrupt. This new charge will give them an annual income around E 7 billion !
