Prior Year Comparison Analysis Entering Data and Printing

If you import your previous year's tax data into the current year, the information will automatically populate the Prior Year Comparison report in the program. If you do not import the prior year's information, you can still manually enter the prior year information for the report.

To enter the information for the Prior Year Comparison Analysis report, or to print the report:

  1. From within your TaxAct return (Online or Desktop), click Review. On smaller devices, click the menu icon in the upper left-hand corner, then choose Review.
  2. Click Reports.
  3. On the Prior Year Comparison screen, click Continue to enter the prior year information. 

After the first time through this section, or if information was imported from the previous year into the return, you will instead see three selections: Review Prior Year, View Report, and Continue.  Click Review Prior Year to enter the prior year information, View Report to view and/or print the report, or Continue to proceed to the next section in the Q&A.
