Tax Refund and Preparation Fees

Taxback.com provides you with the best value for money tax refund service available anywhere in the world. We guarantee to get you the fastest, maximum, legal tax refund and our services and fees reflect this.


Our initial estimation of your tax refund is free – whether you get it online, on email or on the phone from our staff – and there's no obligation to use our service.


Once you send us your documents and signed tax forms, we'll evaluate your refund further and assess what additional services you need such as document retrieval or a temporary social security number. Then we'll let you know how much it will cost to file your tax return for you. For many of our services, we only charge a fee once the refund comes in from the tax office so you don’t need to pay anything upfront. For others, we charge a filing fee in advance of the application being sent to the tax office. Your Account Manager will fully explain the fee payment process when you sign up for our service.


Our fees are based on the fact that we have our own local tax experts around the world who ensure that every single one of our tax refund applications is completely legally compliant with tax laws and is for the maximum amount we can apply for you. All our US income tax returns are signed off and submitted by our Certified Public Account (CPA) and the same goes for our Authorised Tax Agents in Australia.


All our tax refund service fees are based on a percentage of the refund amount approved, subject to a minimum fee.


If you are applying for a personal income tax refund, please select the country you need tax services for to view the relevant fees.
