I have previously used H&R Block software but drew the line after agonizing over my 2010 return and the crazy things they asked but then found it didn't make a difference. All I wanted was to do my taxes in peace without tons of complicated questions. This software met that requirement. The questions were straightforward without legalese. I did upgrade to the Deluxe Edition since I had a couple issues not covered in the free version. Considering that the upgrade was ~$13 compared to the pricier TurboTax & H&R Block, I was thrilled with it. Very easy to use. If your return is the size of General Motors, this is probably not for you but if you maybe have some rentals or other sources of income, this is great software. I will be using it next year too!

I found this product to be not only up-to-date with the IRS current deductions, more importantly it was very user friendly.

It's not the best software I have ever used, but it comes pretty close. it's very simple, very easy to understand. I have recommended this product and haven't heard any complaints to those that have used it so far.

I've used TaxAct before and found it reliable. My taxes are a bit complicated with a Subchapter S and a LLC, and investments that pay dividends. I also have to pay income taxes in two states.

But I have been doing my own taxes for so long that I have a good grasp of the basics and know where to look for changes. Recommended for those who have some understanding of taxes and don't need a more complicated tax software package.

TaxAct is the easiest software I've ever used for doing my taxes. The free version is sufficient for my family. I have been using it every year since 2008, and intend to use it again this year.

You actually work directly on the forms and the softwear checks your work. Cost is Great compared to other software and there is support as well, that I did not use but they were supposed to have if you need. I acyually upgraded to the 2012 Deluxe with state edition.

You get a lot for a free product, and it guides you through your taxes well. However they don't let you save your tax as a real document without paying some money. Luckily there are some print to PDF solutions that work. In addition if you move the folder they automatically save your return in they delete the whole thing, and give you a message about their software only being for use with one tax return. So wherever they put the folder on your computer it must stay there for eternity, or as long as you want to save your tax return in the software. They don't mention that little gem to you!

Very happy to get the software for my brother because his disability prevented him from doing his taxes for the last two years. With this download I was able to assist him.

They're trying to upsell you. This is free online anytime. Don't waste your time. Why wouldn't they explain this when selling the product? It's a sales trick

I have been using Taxact for 7 years. It's intuitive and easy to use. It's self help is useful. The one time I had to contact tech support with a download issue, they were helpful.
