Towards the end of German housing (construction) subsidies?

More than ten years after the European Court of Justice ruled that the German Eigenheimzulage was in breach of European law, the EC also started questioning its successor, the Baukindergeld. ITEM had previously concluded that the Baukindergeld was in breach of European law. We now await the conclusion of the European Commission (EC), which had indicated that it would enable Germany to defend the current rules. If the EC does not agree with the German answer, this could once again mean the end of a German housing (construction) subsidy.
