Very Simple to Use!

2021-03-01

Pros

I have used TaxAct the past couple of years in order to file both my state and federal taxes without any problems whatsoever. When they say they are able to file the most accurate return, they mean it. I say that because they allow more options to choose from when it comes to deductions, for instance, when filing. The platform as a whole is simple to use and the pricing options are quite fair, as well. You can save even more, (20% off the cost of your federal filing), when you visit their website via the following link: https://refer.taxact.com/s/lakingsrule1472583693

Cons

Nothing to report on this front, luckily!

Cheaper than a tax preparer.

2021-07-28

It is easy to file electronically.

Pros

I have been using this software for close to a decade and never had a problem or audit. It saves your information from the previous year and uploads it to your new tax form.

Cons

I am not anywhere near being a tax expert and sometimes I have questions. Sometimes the answers are not clear to me. You will pay a higher amount if your taxes are complicated and lengthy.

Tax Act Review 2020

2021-04-20

I found it easy to use and it met all of my needs for filing several individual federal and state taxes and the efile process was also very easy to use, so it worked great for me.

Pros

You can import your prior tax return very easily and for some IRS tax forms you can also import the data directly from the senders.

Cons

Also in getting some customer support it took a long time to get someone on the phone and they were not that helpful.

Simple Filing

2021-07-15

TaxAct makes tax time much easier for me to file taxes on my own.

Pros

Data can be pulled from previous years, making it quick and easy to enter information that has stayed the same.

Cons

Questions can get redundant that have to be answered multiple times. There are features I do not take advantage of, but the cost seems like it could have a lower option.

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

2019-06-17

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!"

2021-07-23

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.

Easy to Use What More Can You Ask For

2019-09-09

Tackling that year-end chore of filing my taxes is almost palatable with TaxAct Business.

Pros

Let's face it, you still have to file them :( After you have your final numbers, it's just plug and play. Electronic filing is a breeze.

Cons

I discovered that my taxes did not get filed a couple of years ago. I have to confess that it might have been totally my error but just be sure you get the confirmation email that your returns have been accepted.

This Tax Software Saved me!

2019-10-26

Overall, I had a good experience with tax Act, and I was able to successfully file my taxes.

Pros

It does this by providing explanations for complex terms, providing money saving suggestions, and providing alerts when it detects information may contains errors.

Cons

The aspect I liked least was the cost for State filings - federal filings were affordable however I felt that the state filing prices were over priced.

For the money it is a high quality product but other competition my be easier to use.

Pros

This site allows you to do annual taxes without the need of a CPA. It walks you through step by step on items you may need to enter.

Cons

It is not as user friendly as some other options such as taxslayer and TurboTax. It is a cheaper option though.
