Income from employed or self-employed work
Income from a commercial enterprise
Income from capital assets (interest, dividends, price gains on share sales, etc.)
Rental and leasing income
Income from statutory or company pensions, etc.
Income from agriculture and forestry
Other income within the meaning of the catch-all paragraph 22 in the Income Tax Act
Income from inheritances and gifts are not a type of income within the meaning of the Income Tax Act, but are subject to inheritance and gift tax.
"Other income" within the meaning of Paragraphs 22 and 23 of the Income Tax Act include v. a. Income from certain recurring payments, for example retirement provision contracts, but also maintenance payments, diets from members of parliament, and various income from private sales transactions.

Income Tax Act: There is this tax-free income
The Income Tax Act defines tax-free income as inflows in money or monetary value that are not taxable under the Income Tax Act. A distinction must be made between completely tax-free income and tax-free income, which are, however, subject to the progression proviso. The latter means that the income itself is tax-free, but has an effect on the tax rate of the other, taxable income. These types include, for example, sick pay, care allowance, short-time work allowance, unemployment allowance, parental allowance etc. In addition, the tax exemption of income in the Income Tax Act is very often limited to maximum limits, so-called tax allowances. In this case, the relevant income is tax-free up to a certain limit (the tax exemption), all income above this must be taxed.
