In March 2011, Evan had a problem. He had assumed he could complete his tax return with confidence and ease. He was wrong. After hours of stress and frustration, he setup a meeting with his friend Marc. 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, the two created TaxTim.

TaxTim's award-winning simple and intuitive interface has helped over 14 million South Africans with their taxes over 11 years, whilst also teaching students about tax at UCT, WITS, UJ, UKZN, UP, UWC and other top universities. TaxTim is integrated directly with the South African Revenue Service for one-click direct electronic submission of tax returns. In 2016 TaxTim secured investment from Exponential, the innovation unit of JSE-listed company Momentum Metropolitan Holdings.
