    Easy and very efficient. I went to ask about the status of my refund (Tax and superannuation) on the live chat many times and people were extremely quick, efficient and nice.They were always sending me updateds about everything. Reminding me about forgotten documents, answering to every of my question and quickly replying to my emails. So much patience and help. The process went smoothly.

    Very responsive to my emails and questions. My online tracker login never worked, however, I never needed to use it. Good value for money and happy with the service. I did have a lot of forms to fill out but work it in the end when you get your money back

    My agent, Romulo Albares, was very patient and professional throughout the whole process. I'm not a tax expert and I had already come back to Brazil after living in the US for a year, so getting straight with the IRS was a big concern of mine. On top of getting straight with the IRS, so I don't have problems with the US Government, I got a good tax return money, which is very nice.
