  • Verimi identifies users for paperless tax return submission

Berlin/Neunkirchen, 27.02.2020. Buhl Data, the leading provider of solutions for private income tax returns in Germany, is introducing secure identification with the Verimi identity platform. With Buhl’s offerings, citizens complete their tax returns easily, conveniently and securely – in the browser, as an app or on PC and Mac. If they wish, they can submit the completed declaration to the tax office completely paperless. For the particularly convenient digital submission of the tax return, users can now identify themselves via Verimi or use the data already stored with Verimi as proof of identity. This is because Verimi allows Internet users to create a central account and store their personal data in a verified manner. Verification of users is carried out by Verimi directly upon activation of the digital submission via video chat.

“With clever ideas and digital services, we already offer automatic tax returns that almost complete themselves. Now the submission will also be particularly convenient: the user identifies himself once via Verimi and then submits all tax returns to the tax office with just one click. No paper at all, completely digital,” says Peter Schmitz, Managing Director of the Tax segment at Buhl. “We are pleased to have Verimi as a reliable partner for the necessary identification of customers at our side. Together, we are making paperless tax returns a reality and creating real value for millions of users.”

“We look forward to working with Buhl to jointly drive the digitization of private tax returns. With Verimi, we are helping to make essential services for citizens as simple and convenient as possible and transfer them to the digital world,” said Roland Adrian, CEO of Verimi.

Verimi is the secure identity platform from Germany. With their one-time deposited data, users can log in, register and digitally identify themselves with various digital services – whether bank, insurance company or telecommunications provider – securely and with just a few clicks via the Verimi button. Once the identity has been confirmed via Verimi, users can conveniently identify themselves to all Verimi partners without having to identify themselves again.

The Verimi account is additionally secured by a second factor, e.g. the fingerprint on the smartphone. Verimi users always keep track of who they have given access to their data. At the same time, the data is always individually encrypted and remains on servers in Europe.
