For the security of your personal information, a printed or digital copy of your TaxAct Online return is only available by signing into your account and printing or saving it yourself. We cannot mail, fax, or e-mail a paper or electronic copy.


Using your Online account, the print process will generate a Portable Document Format (PDF) file which can be viewed, printed, or saved from a PDF reader.

In order to access the PDF of your return from our mobile view you will need to go through the paper mailing steps.  Doing so will not prevent you from E-filing if you have yet to complete those steps.
