The Munich Rent Office , based in Munich, existed from 1507 to 1802 and, along with Landshut , Straubing and Burghausen, was one of the four administrative districts of the Duchy of Bavaria . The Rentmeisterämter in Munich and Burghausen formed the "Oberland". The Rentamt Amberg was by winning the Upper Palatinate in 1628, the fifth administrative district of the Electorate of Bavaria . Between 1802 and 1919 the rent office was a pure financial authority and thus a forerunner of today's tax office .

Vitztume (from the Latin vicedominus ), who exercised the rights of the duke in parts of the country where the duke was not permanently present, had held office in the Duchy of Bavaria since the 13th century . As the tasks of these vice masters increased over time, these rent masters were assigned as supporting officials. Since this u. a. controlled the finances of the ducal regional courts and other sub-authorities and with these tasks became increasingly important than the Vitztume itself, the Vitztumämter were called rent offices or rent master offices around 1500.

After the reunification of the Duchy of Bavaria through the Cologne verdict at the end of the Landshut War of Succession , there was an administrative reform around 1507. Bavaria was divided into four pension offices. Since the Duke was constantly present in Munich as the capital and residence city, no vice was appointed as a deputy. The formation of a government, which in the other tax offices had the tasks of an intermediate authority in administrative, legal and financial matters, was also dispensed with. These tasks were taken over in Munich by the central authorities (such as the Hofrat and Hofkammer). In the Munich Rent Office, only the rent master and the rent clerk acted as his deputy. The rent master was responsible for supervising the work of the authorities and courts subordinate to him and for ensuring that it was carried out properly. To this end, he made regular inspection trips to the authorities, the so-called Rentmeisterumritte . In addition, the rent master exercised the vicarious change, i.e. the conversion of physical fines into fines.

Earlier than in the other rent offices, the office of rent master in Munich was abolished in 1779 and replaced by a cameraman rent deputation at the court chamber. In the same year it received the district courts of Dorfen, Erding, Isareck and Moosburg from the dissolved Landshut Rent Office, which it had to surrender as early as 1784 when the Landshut Rent Office was re-established. In 1802, in the course of administrative reforms by Maximilian von Montgelas, all tax offices were abolished. In its place for the province of Baiern (Upper and Lower Bavaria), the General State Directorate (from 1803: State Directorate) in Munich took its place, before the Kingdom of Bavaria was divided into districts in 1808, with the areas of the former Munich Rent Office being largely assigned to the Isar district were.

In addition, there was still a rent office in Munich, which was, however, a pure sub-authority of the financial administration for Munich and the surrounding area and which essentially only had the name in common with the old rent office. The Munich tax office emerged from this rent office in 1920 .
