Your personal file
In order to claim a tax refund it is necessary to prepare a personal file with the following: documents from your employer, completed and signed fiscal forms, statement of earned income and income taxes paid in Austria, statement of earned income in Romania, family status declaration, EU/EWR certificate.
Please note that your file is not transferred to other intermediaries, as it is filed directly with the Tax Office in Austria, where the files may be registered only by authorized agents.
By following this protocol, the file is not misplaced, and the shortest processing time is guaranteed.
Some people may choose to prepare and file their own tax returns, or they may ask help from their acquaintances, accountants, or lawyers.
Worth noting is that these persons may be able to recover for you only the overwithheld taxes, however with the help of an authorized agent you may be able to obtain more tax benefits.
The authorized agent represents the client at the Tax Office, signs documents on behalf of the client, and is accountable for the quality and accuracy of the file.
The authorized agent communicates with the Tax Office, takes charge of any delays, or clarifies any issues, and checks the tax refund received from the Tax Office against the estimated amount.
The Tax Office analyzes the file and may request additional documents or clarifications.
You would have to provide a response in the official language, within 30 days from the filing date.
Take advantage of more tax deductions
Each country has its own taxation categories (single non-resident, married non-resident, non-resident with dependents, resident, etc.).
The difference between taxation categories is based on the deductions that one may be able to claim, for example: a married resident with children, may be able to obtain more fiscal benefits than a non-married resident.
We always choose trustworthy partners to serve your needs.
In order to ensure that you will recover the maximum tax refund in the shortest time possible, we only collaborate with agents authorized by the Tax Office in Austria.
