I have had so far good experience over last 7-8 years but now suddenly, can't load their website now - getting message "server not found" thru many countries, mostly in Eastern Europe. I am traveling and right now in Romania but last 5 years, I have filed TaxAct online...Read more
I've used this tax prep site for several years, but after my last experience I'm looking for something different. My major complaint is they force you into this kludgy menu system for entries when all I need is the form. Yes, you do get a "manual entry" option, but...Read more
I am looking at the ad for Taxaxt Premium 2016 on their web site that gives absolutely no exclusions (such as for filing a simple return like the 1040EZ) and that the cost would be free e-filing for federal and $10 for state (see attached pic). However, after creating...Read more

Short Review on November 30, 2016
Taxact is difficult to use this year. I was done and paid $24.99 and wanted to review forms before printing and all of the sudden everything was gone! It had me start from the beginning and to pay again. It's hard to find anyone to contact for help. So frustrated!
Taxact Tax Software Review
After putting information on form *income was different that was sent to the ITS.Don't know what happened to your program but it really messed up my taxes.I had to do an amendment and pay back this year because of it. I had already gotten my taxes direct deposit. I feel like I should be compasated for all the stress and inconvince you have caused me.I have never owed the IRS before.
Other Product Review
Tried to contact customer service, got busy tone. Tried for over 2 days off and on. Finally got through and asked to speak to a manager. The customer service representative was completely unhelpful, rude and when i finally talked to a manager (Steve) he was ruder than the cs person was. I will never use them again!

Unaware, TaxAct Online had downgraded me from Premium filing (1040 with capital gains) to a simpler Plus filing (1040 with Schedule A and associated forms) for tax year 2016. I had been using TaxAct Online for at least 10 years. However, this year, TaxAct Online...Read more
