Who should I use to file my tax return and can I trust Taxback.com?
So you want to claim your tax refund.
But you don't know where to begin.
You know you can always apply yourself with the tax office.
However, tax is complicated and confusing. And how can you be sure you're availing of every credit and relief you're entitled to? Plus, what happens if you make a mistake on your tax return?
Instead, you decide you want to enlist the help of a professional.
But with so many tax agents out there offering a range of different services how can you tell which company is the right one for you?
And how can you be sure that the tax company you choose is safe, trustworthy and not a scam?
Here's some things to look out for while you're choosing your tax agent (and a few reasons you know you can trust Taxback.com!)
(1) We've been doing this for a while
Over 20 years, in fact!
Believe it or not, Taxback.com began at a kitchen table when a young Irish guy started preparing German tax returns for his university friends.
Terry Clune had spent a summer working in Germany and wanted to reclaim the German tax he and his friends had overpaid. But he found the process to be frustrating and difficult. So he took matters into his own hands and did it himself!
Since then, the company has grown quickly. Today we're the global leader in international income tax refund services – our tax team have filed more than 1 million tax returns! We have offices in 27 countries worldwide and a staff of 1,300.
(2) What we believe
Every year thousands of people overpay on their tax bill and miss out on claiming their tax refund.
We believe that no one should overpay tax.
Simply put, people wind up paying too much tax because they don't understand their entitlements.
That's why we're dedicated to educating the public about their rights and entitlements when it comes to tax.
With this in mind, we've released multiple BS-free tax guides:
(In fact, our content has even won the NALA Plain English Award in Ireland)
We also have a Youtube channel with nearly 200 videos about tax.
When you apply for a tax refund with Taxback.com, you're guaranteed to receive your maximum legal tax refund.
Our ISO 9001 certified team of tax experts are dedicated to helping you file fully compliant tax returns and ensuring you claim back any overpaid tax, guaranteeing peace of mind and more money in your pocket!
(3) We're ISO 9001 Certified!
ISO 9001 is probably the most widely recognised quality management system standard in the world.
Our ISO 9001 certification is an external validation of our strong commitment to quality, our customers, partners and staff. The certification also gives you, the customer, the peace of mind that we are committed to providing a secure, quality service set out to the highest standards.
We have also been awarded the ISO 27001 Information Security standard - the international best practice standard for information security.
If you're considering which tax agent is the right one for you, have a look for the ISO certification logo on their website!
(4) Get a FREE refund estimate!
Our service is 'no refund, no fee'.
And one of the main benefits of choosing Taxback.com is that our tax refund calculator is absolutely FREE to use.
When you use our calculator, you'll get an estimate of what you're entitled to claim. Then, if you're happy with what you see, you can proceed and claim your cash!
Our estimate is based on your documents and our experience in filing thousands of tax returns each week. We'll check for any allowances or benefits you're due and ensure we apply for the maximum legal refund possible.

(6) Our service is convenient
How are cheques still a thing in 2019?
I mean seriously?!
Some tax agents send tax refunds to their customers as a cheque in the post. So, when you get it, you have to take time out of your day to walk to the bank and cash it!
But when you apply for your tax refund with Taxback.com, not only will you receive your maximum legal tax refund, we'll also transfer your cash straight to your bank account.
