This app is super easy to navigate and the support team is stellar. I made a mistake on my first one and they were quick to respond to my concerns and get my unreviewed form back on the app so I could fix it. It’s all in English and even has information about each of the sections you fill out.

Makes Filing German Taxes Fun

Really simple and easy to use, would highly recommend for expats to use. Only reason I didn’t put 5/5 stars is because I wish the app showed status of taxes being filed which changes every step of the processes so you feel more informed of what’s going on. Also wish it had a copy of my entire tax documents which would be sent to the Finanzamt.

Super easy to use, all in English, and cheaper than finding a tax advisor. I got my taxes done in one afternoon, the app takes care of sending everything to the Finanzamt, and I got my refund in a just a few weeks, and it was a nice refund as well. Will be using this app in the future.
