The tax declaration process is complex and challenging. Many people, all over the world, dread the effort it takes to file their taxes.
While most people don’t like them, taxes are actually a good thing — we need them. They exist to support and regulate the economy. Ideally, taxes help to increase equality in an unequal world.
The problem is: most people don’t fully benefit from the tax system because they don’t have access to easy filing solutions that allow them to get the most return.
Because of this, billions of euros in tax refunds go unclaimed each year. More than 20% of employed people in Germany don’t submit a tax return and their average refund of €1,027 per person remains unclaimed every year.
At Taxfix, our mission is to help regular people — ensuring they receive all the money they work for and are entitled to, especially those who need it most.
With our customer-friendly app and smart technology, we’ve made it possible for everyone to claim their full tax refund with no prior tax knowledge.
Our tax-filing app guides users through an elegant interface, gathering all necessary information using a series of simple, conversational questions. People can intuitively file their taxes with us in under 22 minutes so they have more time for the things they truly enjoy.
Taxfix empowers users to file their taxes easily, often for the first time. By helping people file their tax returns in a stress-free way, we are also helping them to make increasingly better financial decisions. In addition to more than 40,000 positive reviews in the app stores, we receive daily thank-you emails from people all over about how the often unexpected refunds positively affect their lives. This direct economic impact on hundreds of thousands of people is something we are extremely proud of.
