Let’s face it, doing your tax return is not a pleasant task no matter if your are getting a refund or not. The lingo and what ifs, can be overwhelming and complicated.
For years I used a nationally known tax return company, who basically went through a process of questions and put them into the computer and hit enter and then took a large portion of my tax refund!
I looked at other tax software and although their prices were lower than nationally known chain, still they took a large portion of our tax refund.
I switched to TaxACT online software (which I have now used for several years to file our taxes). TaxACT also has an available Tax software that can be downloaded for those more comfortable with that option. I have been very happy with the ease of use and very happy to report no problems with returns and everything is accurate for filing and fast!
TaxACT makes the process as painless as possible. They walk you through a serious of questions that walk you through the processing of doing taxes. Not only does it provide accurate tax returns but also catches mistakes and catches many options to help with taxes that you would miss in the manual process….things like child tax credit…the form is automatic based on the questions you answer!
TaxACT gives you the free filing option that the IRS does for those meeting the income requirements. To file state tax return, there is a charge in some cases for efiling or print filing but the charge is reasonable at $12.95.
TaxACT is an approved tax return software by the IRS and most states. As you work on your return if you need to quit and return to later…all your work is saved until you sign on again. The software also allows for the pulling in of data from last year’s returns that are needed for this year’s return.
One of the best features is TaxACT tax return software tells you in advance how much based on your income you need to enter for itemized deductions. As an example if your medical expenses fall below that amount, no need to go through the whole process of entering information that will not be used anyway.
After completing the federal return, much of what you entered for the federal return is automatically brought into the state return.
TaxACT has available options to check your return not only for mistakes but for items that might be a red flag or could save you money on next years tax return, things like opening and IRA, etc.
Once your return is complete, efiling is as easy as pressing a button. You can also track your refund via TaxACT to see where it is in the refund process. You can also print all the tax forms to have a copy for your records.
TaxAct provides a fast and easy way to prepare and file your income tax returns.
