Frequently asked questions

We cannot accurately predict how long it takes to file your taxes in your specific case. This depends a lot on the complexity of your tax situation. One thing is for sure: There aren’t many tax-filing solutions quicker than Taxfix. On average, completing your tax declaration with us takes less than half an hour.

Normally, you receive the annual payslip from your employer by February of the following year. It should arrive automatically without a request from your side. The statement contains the income information of the previous year. If you changed jobs during the year, the employer has most probably sent you the statement by the end of your employment contract.

In general, when filing tax returns for the year 2017 and after, you don’t need to hand in your receipts to the tax office. You provide them only upon request from the tax office. That said, you should file your receipts safely so that they’re accessible. Please note: it’s not possible to transmit documents electronically along with your tax return, and only a postal transmission is accepted.

We cannot exactly predict how long the tax office will need to calculate your tax return. We often see time frames of 6-12 weeks until the tax assessment arrives. If you don’t hear back from the tax office within four months, you may want to contact them. Ideally, you email your tax return to the tax office requesting the current status and reason for delay.
