Hi everybody,

I have a silly question. I had an interview with an US company in germany. They offered me a X salary "net of tax".

what does that mean? Is that a take home pay or net wage? Or is that a gross salary?

Thank you very much

Maik

Ask for clarification. My guess is it's the pay after taxes but you can never be sure
Could even be they're paying you and expect you to do all taxes yourself (rather than them paying the income tax) as happens sometimes with expats who pay taxes in their home country rather than the country they work in.
