    what was once free is no longer....last year using taxact as there are other free options out there.

    reliable, relatively easy to use.

    price increase of 150% from $12.99 to $29.99 is ridiculous, will be switching next year

    I received discount email but when I purchased it there was no discount option during purchasing. So I paid the full price.

    I did not like this version. I like previous better, this version was confusing and scattered. I have to look for what I need and it was not your best.

    Great program use it every year.
  • Apr 12, 2016
    Too many questions at the very beginning of purchase. I was in a hurry to download, not answer so many questions.
  • Apr 12, 2016
    We went through a major computer issue and had a lot of assistance from TaxAct to get our issues resolved with our tax records. Service was prompt and helpful and very patient. Thank you!

    I filled out the tax--survey keeps crashing

    A real price jump this year and a change in names makes it hard to verify what you are buying and why you are paying more. Would also think there would be discounts simply based on number of years ordered product from same place versus when it is ordered. With new pricing will definitely shop around a bit next year.

    Numbers seem off this year so I am going to look at others now I think. I am also not sure about the new version or the new pricing.
