    User for 7 years... still going
  • Apr 9, 2015
    Only thing that was annoying was the need to log in multiple times. Had to log in with cust ID and password 3 times during the process. Ideally once we log in we should not have to log in again to enter credit card info and then again to download the software.

    TaxAct is simple to use, and works very well for me.

    The more confusing things get, not just in new tax laws, but because I am on a new med that makes my brain less reliable, the more I need TaxAct to help me safely - and simply - navigate the system and feel confident when submitting to the IRS. I really like this company's products!

    The Chat option was hard to find, maybe that was on purpose, but would be nice to have it in plain view.

    Could work on user friendliness, like turbo tax better on that perspective could use more help and hints, direct link to intructionshelp form would be greatly appreciated

    failed credit card purchase should not require completly re-entering your info. Only the credit card info should be re-entered

    Every year we have issues with your software....mostly the id does not work or you have never heard of us. You product makes me sick! We plan to find another product. Another thing....I spent $21.99 and d/l'd T/A including WI, but now you want another $15.00 for state.

    Well-designed software, easy to access and use.

    1. Unless I missed it, I would like to be able to import tax info directly from source. 2. After inputting personal info, I would like to be initially prompted for what tax forms I received. This way I don't skip a form and then have to back track to fill it out.
