Berlin based tax filing mobile assistance has closed $13m in Series A led by Thiel's Valar Ventures. Launched in 2017, TaxFix is built on the premise that filing taxes remains a daunting task in most countries without the proper optimization - with 10m Germans who forego filing.
“The problem is that most people don’t have a personal tax accountant, nor the sufficient knowledge on how to file their taxes,” explains Taxfix co-founder and CEO Mathis Büchi. “Taxpayers are required to invest a substantial amount of time to become an expert themselves to receive their maximum tax refund. That’s why the rich can optimise their taxes with their own accountants and the regular citizens are overpaying billions of Euros in taxes every year in almost every country in the world”.
