The IRS limits anyone who is not a licensed tax preparer to five electronically filed returns. TaxACT Deluxe, by law, supports this e-file limitation. It can however, complete an unlimited number of paper filed returns.
If you are a tax preparer and would like to prepare unlimited electronically filed returns, please purchase TaxACT Preparer's 1040 Edition. Keep in mind, however, that you must obtain a PTIN (Preparer Tax Identification Number) and an EFIN (Electronic Filing Identification Number) from the IRS in order to file electronic returns with our preparer's edition.
