// NEW: Expert Service
Taxfix connects you with an independent tax advisor so you can sit back and have your taxes filed for you. Simply upload your documents to the app and a professional will do the rest.

If you decide to file on your own with Taxfix:
// Step by step
Our app retrieves important info from you in a simple, conversational way – much like an interview. The intelligent question flow ensures that you only answer questions relevant to your case.
// No tax expertise required
You don't need tax knowledge to answer our questions. If you are unsure about something, the info boxes within the app offer assistance at any point.
// Simply photograph or upload your documents
Upload or photograph your annual payslip (Lohnsteuerbescheinigung) and a document to confirm your identity. To save you effort, we automatically transfer all relevant data from your annual payslip to the corresponding fields of your tax return.
// Risk-free calculation
Compared to the classic paper-form tax return, Taxfix's income tax calculation offers a distinct advantage: It's completely risk-free! You can have your refund calculated – free of charge – and then decide whether or not you would like us to submit your tax return to the tax office.
// Paperless transmission
Your tax return gets filed electronically, using the tax authorities' official ELSTER interface. Thanks to the paperless transmission to your local tax office, you don't need to print or sign anything. Filing your taxes is a completely contactless transaction with Taxfix.
// Fair pricing policy
Downloading the Taxfix app, using the app, and calculating your tax refund are all free. For a flat fee of €39.99, or €59.99 for married couples and civil partnerships, you can submit your tax return directly to your local tax office. For 20% of your tax refund, you can have your taxes prepared and filed for you by an expert tax advisor.
// Fast & efficient
Did you know that taxpayers in Germany can look forward to an average refund of €1,072? Or that you're able to file your tax returns retroactively for up to four years? This would amount to a combined average tax refund of over €4,000. With Taxfix you can complete a tax return in under 30 minutes! So, what are you waiting for?
We created Taxfix to support as many taxpayers as possible in claiming their well-earned tax refunds. Our app always works to your advantage – any lump sums or deductions that apply are automatically considered!

So so - somewhat easy, just like for other software or apps, though the Lohnsteuer scan didn't work well. No real explanations so I had to Google to not guess. Overall, not very transparent and I had to search for the actual return. App made a mistake on the return (applied deductible for married couples instead of single, though I entered it correctly). If you speak German, there are better apps that are more clear and easier to use. The customer service is courteous and helpful though.

I've used Taxfix appast year and my user experience was great. Now app is terrible, after answering each question it takes the app at least 3-4 min to save my answer and go to the next question. This means that filling in one section of questions takes 30-40 minutes. And last stage with personal data gathering simply doesn't work. Extremely disappointed.

Worst service. I've uploaded my documents five times, and each time a day after they were rejected with the reason, "The documents you have provided are blurred or partially unreadable." Even when I used a scanner the last time, I still received this message. The user experience is terrible; they force you to use mobile instead of desktop, and there is no support available. All they have is an auto-reply email that suggests related links similar to your problem.

What's new

Nobody likes to wait, even if the next train is coming in two minutes. In our latest update, we have taken care to reduce the loading time. And even though there’s still a little bit of room for improvement (we continue working on it), you can now complete and submit your tax return more smoothly.
