If you receive a special offer for discount pricing on a TaxAct product, you have to use the link provided in the message to apply the discount to your return. After clicking the link, register for a new account or sign in to your existing account, as applicable, to receive the special pricing. If you don't click the link in the offer, the discounted price will not be applied to your account.
If the discount is for TaxAct Online, you can pay before you file in order to get the discounted price before it changes (pricing is subject to change before you file). To pay for TaxAct Online before you file, go to our How to Pay TaxAct Product Fees FAQ.
