    I found the price of the product much, much higher than last year and almost made me go to a competitor.

    TaxAct is good product but the price keep increasing every year.

    The product as tax preparation software is pretty good, but the security put into effect before you can use it each time is nightmarish!!!!!!!!!!!!! After you enter your user name and password (which must be changed regularly although you are not aware of that your old password is no longer valid, until you find out your old one does not work). Once you have gone through all of the bullshit changing the password and are ready to use the product, you are often asked to enter a verification code which is sent by e-mail which can take a while to receive, which wastes your time. If Tax Act doesn't wake up they will lose all of their customers. What was once a good product to use has become a nightmare. Why am I still using it you might ask, well it has unique features for CPA's like myself who only do tax returns and not "write up" work. I will be looking at other alternatives for next year.

    great product! I have been using tax act for plus 10 years.

    Order products page should have a link to state programs. This keeps customers from having to do the same thing twice

    I continue to use TaxAct because I do not like Turbo Tax but I am unhappy about the price hike this year (approximately 45% over last year)

    You are great

    I don't like that Tax Act do not allow to dawn load 2 business tax 1065 on one computer. I have 2 different businesses and I have to use 2 different computers to prepare their taxes. Will be great if I will be able to prepare both taxes on the same computer.

    I purchased this pogram for 62 bucks as a premium and in order to continue I have upgrade-have used this program for 12 years-this is the last time I will use it. I will also tell others of my disappointment.

    TaxAct does not treat canceled credit card debt correctly for the state of Pennsylvsnia . PA does not tax credit card canceled debt but the program does ... I can’t find out how to correct this .

    The price is getting high enough so I may not buy the product next year

    The software used to be a better value. It has become a bit pricey.

    I bought TaxAct Plus and it locked up so that I had to order an add on for Freelancer. I could not go forward until I added that for $15. Last year, I had no problem with Plus and did not have this issue. What a crock of you know what. If I go in and change the forms my self, it won't let me electronically get my refund.

    I think it's ridiculous how I had to pay $25 more this year than I did last year. I had to file a Schedule C last year for my $3000k MISC income from a side job. I'll be looking elsewhere next year.
