It's great that you can send the tax return electronically to the tax office. I have access to all submitted returns at anytime, so that you never lose overview. Awesome!

I can only recommend the electronic tax return with studentensteuererklärung.de. Really easy way to get a refund from the German government. Worked easily for me without problems or questions. It's really a step-by-step process. This way, I was able to finish my tax return within 15 min. Thank you!

I was a bit sceptical at first, but was positively surprised when I was done after half an hour. I called studentensteuererklaerung.de for their technical support, really helpful! Thanks for this opportunity!.
