    My contract and work permit ended in mid 2021, i had the pleasure in having my case handled by taxback professional representative Nina Velikova. Since my case was little complicated Nina took the extra mile in contacting me via phone to assist me in fully understanding my case and how we can execute it in the best way for my maximum benefit. Thanks to Nina and taxback team.

    Good and affordable service Good and affordable service. With their help, I was able to file late returns in Canada and New Zealand, which included complicated double-taxation issues. I especially appreciated their willingness to communicate regularly with me via email. Thank you.
