Frequently asked questions

With Taxfix, there are two ways to file your tax return: complete the simple question-and-answer process via app or browser, or have your tax done by an independent tax advisor using Expert Service.

If you do your tax yourself, you can get a free calculation of your estimated refund before you submit to your local tax office via the official ELSTER interface.

Do your own tax: After registering on the app or via browser, you will answer an average of 70 questions that are specifically tailored to your tax case. After that, you will immediately receive a free refund calculation that estimates what you can expect to get back. If you choose to submit your taxes at that point, we will send your tax return paperlessly to your local tax office. After processing by the tax office, your potential refund will be paid into your account and you will receive your tax assessment.

Have your tax done for you: With Expert Service, simply upload a few documents and receive your tax return in days. All you have to do is check it, and approve it - that's it!

Download the Taxfix app free of charge from the Apple App Store, the Google Play Store, or access our site in your web browser. At no extra cost, you can calculate your expected tax refund. Alternatively, you can use the Taxfix Expert Service and have your tax return prepared by an independent tax advisor. Find the current prices for both services on the Taxfix costs page.

Sending a tax return to the tax office is definitely not something you do off the cuff – especially when it comes to one's own finances. And when specialised knowledge is required, it’s understandable that one would want to be cautious or even sceptical.

For questions that require explanation, Taxfix offers info texts and corresponding advice articles or tax tips. These help with general questions on specific points, but not with individual tax questions.

Yes, you can now choose to only pay after you receive your estimated refund calculation, which is free of charge. The processing of tax returns usually takes 6-12 weeks. Your selected bank account will then be debited automatically. However, you will only be offered this option if you have done your taxes yourself with Taxfix, or if you have used the instant payment option.

If you use our Expert Service, you can also choose to only pay when you receive the tax assessment from the tax office.
