We have implemented several features in the sign in process to help make sure it's really you accessing your account:
To verify your identity, we'll send a unique security code to your email or mobile phone when you sign in. Simply enter that code to authenticate your identity and access your information.

In addition to identity authentication, vigorous monitoring, and other security processes, TaxAct encrypts your clients' return data every time it's sent to us or the IRS. We use industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol which provides data encryption, message integrity, and server authentication. In addition, we take pride in being Payment Card Industry compliant, ensuring that your payment information is safe. For more information, see our Security Information page.
If you notice suspicious activity related to your bank account, credit cards, or other financial accounts, see these recommendations from the IRS. Never provide your usernames or passwords to others, and always maintain good security practices. For additional help, see these resources:
