The System to Beat the System


Unfair advantages are an outrage. Until you're the one who has them. Then they're like the best thing ever. Clever tax breaks. Shrewd deductions. Opportunistic navigation of the United States tax code. The only time those things aren't awesome is when they're unavailable to regular people. At TaxAct, we don't "make things fair." What fun is there in that? We make unfair accessible to all. What could be more American?
