Software Overview

TaxAct is a tax preparation program used to prepare and file U.S. Federal and State tax returns. It provides a cost-effective, do-it-yourself experience.

TaxAct is available online or for Windows as a download in the following editions:

  1. Basic - Allows you to import data from the previous year.
  2. Deluxe - Supports itemized returns, deductions, and other tools for homeowners.
  3. Premier - Most popular choice and includes support for investments and rental properties.
  4. Self Employed - Best choice for self-employed users, contractors, and freelancers.

The TaxAct interface provides step-by-step guidance with simple, straight-forward questions. The program guarantees a 100% accurate return and the maximum refund possible. Throughout the return process, the program displays the current calculated total tax refund or tax due amount. If you do get hung up on a question or are confused by your refund or tax due amount, TaxAct offers technical assistance through its Answer Center and free email help.

TaxAct is a solid tool for helping you file your taxes. It provides step-by-step guidance and guarantees 100% accuracy on your returns. TaxAct may not offer the same technical assistance and amount of features as Intuit TurboTax or H&R Block Tax Software but it is available for much less. TaxAct proves to be a cost-effective and helpful tool for preparing and filing U.S. Federal and State tax returns.
