Alert - Review Alerts

To run the Alerts in the TaxAct® program:

  1. From within your TaxAct return (Online or Desktop), click Review.
  2. Click Double-Check directly below, and then click Run the Review
  3. Continue through the alert screens until you reach the screen titled Good news! Your review is complete.

The IRS has certain requirements that a return must meet in order to go through the transmission process from TaxAct to the IRS e-filing system. Because of this, there may be additional alerts you will see during the electronic filing process. E-file alerts ensure the return qualifies for the electronic submission.

Although the return passes all alerts in the TaxAct program, your return may still get rejected. If the return is rejected, you will receive an email outlining why the IRS did not accept the return. This gives you an opportunity to modify your return and re-submit it to the IRS again.
