yes you are free to pay church taxes, but i forgot the health care
I’m not sure I understand what you mean by “free to pay”? It’s not an
obligatory tax then? And I’m guessing from your response that if you
pay this tax you’ll get health care coverage?
Everyone's health care is covered in Germany, like in all developed countries worldwide, with the exception of the U.S.
It is called "gesetzliche Krankenversicherung" smthg. like lawfull health insurance and it is not connected to church taxes, that is a misunderstanding between us.
