Get help completing your tax forms
Guiding you through your tax return, SteuerGo makes sure it’s impossible for you to omit any relevant data. Rather than bombarding you with jargon and cryptically-named tax forms, SteuerGo presents you with simple questions. You are then directed to the required fields or sections based on your answers. While the SteuerGo app is perfect for simple cases (for instance if you're employed with just one source of income), the web version can easily handle more complicated cases like income from investments or rental properties.
When you're done, your entries will be automatically checked to make sure the return is filled out completely and correctly. You’ll immediately get a real-time tax refund calculation to let you know how much you can expect to receive. Once the tax office has processed your tax return and issued the tax assessment notice (Steuerbescheid), SteuerGo will check it for accuracy.
Fill out your forms automatically
You can also save time in future by transferring data from previously-completed tax returns to those for future years. What's more, SteuerGo can automatically retrieve a lot of your data from the tax office and insert it into the right fields on your tax return form - meaning you can get it done a whole lot faster.
Upload your supporting documents
You can rest assured that your tax return is all in order thanks to SteuerGo’s handy checklist function, which allows you to prepare and submit your supporting documents along with your tax return. You can submit them digitally, directly to the tax office, via SteuerGo, saving you the trouble of printing them out and posting them.
Test for free, pay when you submit
SteuerGo is confident that you’ll like doing your tax returns with them. So they let you test it out, free of charge, and only ask you to pay when your forms are ready to submit and your calculation is ready.
Rather than a subscription fee, all they ask for is a one-off payment of 34,95 euros for one tax return. You can also save money by purchasing several tax returns (which can be used in any year) in a discounted bundle. All of the costs are even tax deductible!
Complete your tax return on your computer, tablet or mobile phone
It's possible to use SteuerGo on any device, including computers, tablets and mobile phones - no software downloads on your computer needed! The SteuerGo app is now available in German and English on the App Store and Google Play.
SteuerGo uses the highest security servers based in Germany and complies with the strict German data protection guidelines, so you can be sure that your data is protected.
Maximise your savings with helpful tips and hints
Not only is filling out your tax return with SteuerGo super simple, but you can also benefit from their customised tax tips, which are designed to help you get a higher tax refund.
Benefit from useful tax tips
Throughout your tax return preparation process, SteuerGo provides simple explanatory texts to enable non-German speaking users to understand exactly which information needs to be entered and where.
Save money with tips on deductions
You also get given helpful tax tips for deductions, including things like travel and childcare costs, installations, home repairs and cleanings, and even relocation costs to Germany, allowing you to reduce your overall tax burden and save.
If you worked from home this year, you shouldn’t forget to claim the home office allowance of 5 euros per day (up to a maximum of 600 euros per year). It’s quick and easy to claim all of these deductions with SteuerGo.
If you’ve received Kurzarbeitergeld
If you’ve received the short-time allowance (Kurzarbeitergeld), you are obliged to submit a tax return in Germany. Claiming the short-term allowance for the previous tax year or other tax years is also possible via SteuerGo, which keeps all of its forms up-to-date according to the latest German tax regulations.

Tax advisors are only available to you during regular working hours - and even then they have to juggle the demands of multiple clients. SteuerGo, on the other hand, is available to you 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, allowing you to complete your tax return when it's convenient for you.
