Always kept me updated...already recommended to my friends
I would highly recommend. Johannes is extremely good, knowledgeable, very responsive, kind, and helpful. He explained all the steps in details, took time in answering all my questions, filed my refund very fast and always kept me updated about the status. Mine took time due to the official in charge of my file, however, he always followed up about the status and provided any additional documents if needed. I have already recommended him to my friends. Some of them who already have received the refund had a very positive experience.
