"Once I file one tax return, I have to do it every year."

Fortunately not! This actually depends on whether or not your situation requires a mandatory tax return. If not, it is your choice – year after year.


With Taxfix, you can calculate your estimated refund for free before submitting to the tax office; so you can base your decision on whether or not it actually pays off for you!

"I must enclose all receipts & bills with my tax return."

Also, not true! You’re only required to send in receipts in case the tax officers request them from you. That’s why we would always advise you to keep your bills filed in case the tax office demands a proof of certain expenses; but you don’t have to include anything right away!
