The TaxAct® Professional programs start releasing in late October and are updated periodically throughout the filing season. The federal editions released in October are preview editions and do not contain the finalized tax forms. The programs are updated when the final forms are released. You can import your prior year clients with the preview and they will be updated accordingly.
You may download the programs once they are released by signing in to your account. Once you are signed in, you will need to click on Orders and Downloads.
