Imagine if doing your tax return was as easy as having a conversation? TaxTim empowers you to do your very own tax return quickly, easily and with confidence.
In 2011, TaxTim co-founder and CTO Evan had a problem. He had assumed he could complete his own tax return with confidence and ease. He was wrong. After hours of stress and frustration, he set up a meeting with his friend Marc (co-founder and CFO). Marc knew all about tax and made the process quick and easy. Evan thought "What if I could put Marc's brain in a machine, then put it online so that everyone could have their very own affordable tax man to help them?"
With initial seed funding from Google and some hard work, Marc and Evan created TaxTim, an online service designed to assist the average person in completing their own tax return quickly, easily and with confidence.
Evan is an inventor, problem solver and programmer of 20+ years. He is a serial tech entrepreneur and high-voltage enthusiast.
Marc is passionate about tax, education and growing his business. He is an entrepreneur and part-time historian.
