Both the TaxAct® Professional Editions can be used to prepare your own return (where you do not want the Paid Preparer's section of the return to be completed).

To remove the preparer information from the Form 1040 U.S. Individual Income Tax Return:

  1. From within your TaxAct return, click Tools down the left to expand, then click Forms Assistant.
  2. Click to expand the FEDERAL Forms folder, then click to expand the Information Worksheets folder.
  3. Click Basic Information - Basic Information, then click Edit to open the Federal Basic Information worksheet.
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the form until you reach the Paid Preparer / Electronic Return Originator (ERO) Information section.
  5. Check Do not include paid preparer information on this return.

This will remove the information from Form 1040 and also (if applicable) from Form 1040-X Amended U.S. Individual Income Tax Return.

Note that any link in the information above is updated each year automatically and will take you to the most recent version of the document at the time it is accessed.
