Filers can get personalized tax filing advice for free with TaxAct Xpert Assist or have a tax expert complete their return for them with TaxAct Xpert Full Service.

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa, January 5, 2022 – TaxAct®, a leading DIY tax preparation solution, today announced all DIY filers can now connect one-on-one with CPAs and other tax experts for free using TaxAct® Xpert Assist. No matter the complexity of their return, filers can tap into TaxAct’s network of professionals and get the filing assistance they need for no additional charge. Beginning in late January, filers can also choose to have a dedicated tax expert prepare and file their tax return for them with TaxAct® Xpert Full Service. Amidst a complicated tax year, TaxAct is committed to helping filers of all tax situations get the filing assistance they need to confidently complete their returns and get their maximum refunds.

TaxAct Xpert Assist Now FREE for All Filers

All DIY TaxAct customers can now use TaxAct Xpert Assist for free and get access to:

  • Unlimited, expert guidance: While completing their returns, filers can connect directly with a team of CPAs and other tax experts at a time that works best for them to get their questions answered. Filers can also share their screen for added convenience. Hours of operation initially include Monday through Friday and will increase to seven days a week in mid-January.

  • Expert return review: TaxAct customers can have a tax expert quickly review their 2021 return before they file. Even with a seamless filing process, having experts look over returns adds another layer of confidence, protects against errors, and helps filers maximize their refunds

“With multiple tax law changes over the past year, including the complexities of monthly Child Tax Credit payments and unemployment income, tax filers have a lot to navigate when it comes to their tax returns,” said Curtis Campbell, President of TaxAct. “At TaxAct, we are now offering our filers free, unlimited access to experts so they can easily get the guidance they need to file with confidence, knowing they’re getting back every dollar they deserve.”

TaxAct Xpert Full Service New This Year

Tax filers who prefer to have an expert complete their return for them can take advantage of a brand-new offering available later this month called TaxAct Xpert Full Service. Whether a filer’s taxes are simple or complex, TaxAct Xpert Full Service provides personalized attention from CPAs, EAs, and other tax experts from start to finish. After creating a return with TaxAct Xpert Full Service, filers are asked to securely upload their tax information and are matched with a tax expert who quickly starts completing their return. Before e-filing, the expert will review the return with the filer and answer any questions they may have. TaxAct Xpert Full Service is an easy way to file with peace of mind for minimal effort.
