    Taxact is a very consistent tools to use year after year. I'm only interested in getting my taxes done, not learning how to do it. The guide the process well, but still offer to have good tax help as you go along.

    I paid #39.99 for the same package in 2015 versus $70 in 2016. Will be moving away from TaxAct as the price is now very similar to H&R Block

    Checking out was very difficult. I entered my customerID and password from last year, but couldn't access my account. I tried resetting my password three times. First time a pop-up message said I could not use special characters. Second time, I made it smaller, but apparently it was too small (6 characters), but I never received any message that it needed to be longer. Third time, I used my email address and finally got to a page with a checklist of many characteristics for the password, including that it must include a special character! PLEASE make this easier next year! I have written down the password and I sure hope it works the first time next year. Otherwise, checking out was relatively easy.

    Prices for downloadable tax returns have doubled since last year which is not great.But i like the product and will buy it unless there are more increases.

    Like the product the only problem I had with with using TaxAct was that my CustomerID and Password was apparently marked to be updated, but the error message that I was getting just indicated that Iwasn't remembering them correctly. It took me a whiile to figure out that I needed to change both my CustermerID/Username and Password because the error message wasn't telling me I needed to change both.
