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 report:
- From within your TaxAct return (Online or Desktop), click Review , then click Reports (on smaller devices, click in the top left corner of your screen, then click Review).
- Continue with the interview process until you reach the screen titled Would you like to compare this year's return to last year's?, then click Yes, let's run the comparison. (if you have already been through this part of the program, or if you imported the return from the pervious year, the screen will instead be titled Would you like to view your prior year comparison report?, and then you will need to click Review Prior Year).
- Continue with the interview process to enter your information
