Verification Code - I Need One or I No Longer Have Access to Email Account

If you’re expecting a verification code by email:

  • Check all junk, spam, or other folders
  • If you use other email accounts, check those inboxes as well
  • Expand any conversation threads to check for newly-received messages

If you don't receive a code via email as requested:

  1. In the Check Your Email window, click one of the following:
    • Resend Code - this will send a new code via email
    • Try a text message verification - this will send a code to the mobile phone associated with your account

      NOTE: Either choice will generate a new code, so all previous codes will no longer be valid. Always be sure you're entering the most recent code sent. It can take a few minutes for the code to arrive.

If you no longer have access to the email or mobile phone associated with your TaxAct Account:

  1. In the Check your Email window, click Recover your account if you have entered a username
  2. Enter personal info when prompted

I still can't get the code - now what?
