A tax advisor (Steuerberater) is a professional who can help you with your personal and business taxes. Your tax advisor can file your taxes, do your bookkeeping, handle employee payrolls, and more. If you are self-employed, they are really useful.

Steuerberater is a protected title in Germany, and only people with specific qualifications can be tax advisors. Buchhalter is not a protected title.
