SteuerGo allows you to complete your tax returns for the past four years (or eight years via a web browser). Our tax app walks you through all relevant sections, delivers useful tax tips, and precisely calculates your maximum tax refund – without any forms or paperwork. Your tax return, along with your data, is sent to the tax office via the secure ELSTER interface. No need to sort or scan employment tax statements and receipts – the tax office will contact you if necessary. Plus, our data transfer feature makes it easy to transfer your data from one tax return to other tax years.


SteuerGo makes completing your income tax return a snap – just 25 minutes on average! In just a few weeks, you can receive an average refund of over 1,000 €. Even if you're not required to file a tax return, submitting one voluntarily can still be beneficial. Thanks to allowances, users can get even more money back after filing a tax return – for example, due to work-related expenses like a new laptop, relocation or maintaining a second household.


Our tax app automatically fills out your tax return by retrieving your data from the tax office. Just add a few details to your new tax return and use the easy-to-understand explanatory texts and FAQ section. If needed, our customer support is available within 24 hours.

SteuerGo offers helpful texts and tax tips based on current tax laws. You'll receive comprehensive support to ensure you don't forget any crucial details when creating your tax return and you can maximise your tax savings.

SteuerGo is free until you submit your tax return. Enter everything risk-free and see your potential tax refund. Submission costs €34.95 if you're required to file a tax return or if your refund is over €50. For voluntary submission of a tax return with a tax refund below €50, the next submission is free – no subscription, no hidden fees. You can even deduct the app costs from your next tax return!
