Pros
TaxAct has a great free software product, but this Business software is good for businesses. I do my own taxes and also help others and I'm happy when I use TaxAct.

I loved TaxAct when we did use it. It is very affordable for small business owners, and guides you through all the questions in order to autofill our taxes.

Shilleah S.

I like that this is a relatively inexpensive way to do your taxes. If you have questions, it will help guide you through them.

Cons
The lack of a W-2 import is disappointing. Being able to upload your income information saves time and prevents errors from manual entry.

Neha T.

Had problem electronically submitting to IRS. In fact, the TaxAct indicated that it was submitted, but later I got the request from IRS to submit it by paper.

Some things are listed only by their "technical title" and I would have to figure out which is which myself. Minor inconvenience for those not familiar with tax forms.

Easy Way of Doing Our Small Business Taxes on Our Own!

Reviewed 3 years ago

I loved TaxAct when we did use it! It is very affordable for small business owners, and guides you through all the questions in order to autofill our taxes.

Pros

It walked me through all the uploading and importing of our business tax information, and pretty much held my hand the whole way through our business taxes.

Cons

We ended up switching our Payroll to Intuit, so was easier for us to use Turbotax this year instead of TaxAct, since it is directly linked with our payroll

"Simple Method of Doing Our Independent company Expenses all alone!"

Reviewed 6 months ago

I cherished TaxAct when we utilized it! It is entirely reasonable for entrepreneurs, and guides you through every one of the inquiries to autofill our charges.

Pros

It strolled me through all the transferring and bringing in of our business charge data, and basically held my hand the entire way through our business charges.

Cons

We wound up changing our Finance to Intuit, so was simpler for us to utilize Turbotax this year rather than TaxAct, since it is straightforwardly connected with our finance.

Affordable but doesn’t offer as many extra features as its competitors

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

TaxAct software is comparatively easy to use, with pricing that compares well with most of the other available software. Unlike Turbo Tax and H&R Block, it can’t import W-2 automatically due to which it takes time to file the return. Tax Act is relatively less expensive. The interface is simple and navigation is relatively easy. Tax Act allows you to import a previous year’s return, which saves some time as individual do not have to enter all your personal information. It also allows you to pay your filing fee with your refund. Review and alerts are also available in this software before finalizing of returns.

Cons

The lack of a W-2 import is disappointing. Being able to upload your income information saves time and prevents errors from manual entry. It also lacks good customer support.

TaxAct Professional

Reviewed 7 months ago

Absolutely love it. It actually is more comprehensive than required.

Pros

The only thing that would make this software better is a little more ability to customize reporting.

Cons

Backroom reporting could be a little more flexible. However, it is a minor issue in the overall performance.

Sometimes, the wording can be a bit confusing, but customer service comes in to save the day for me!
