    I've used for a number of years, and his is he first time I've not been too happy with it in two areas. First, the Donated Items portion was terribly difficult to use, both from a technical standpoint and the items it covered. Second, I spent an inordinate amount of time trying to figure out how to use the portion of TaxAct dealing with the purchase and sale of stocks. I was very frustrated and disappointed in TaxAct for the first time. When I tried to contact TaxAct for help all the lines were busy.

    I did notice a significant price increase.
  • Jan 29, 2017
    I don't like the constant increase in prices especially for myself as I am a repeat customer. Also I got no discounts or promopromotions this year.
