TaxAct Online (Over the Web Users)

If you used TaxAct Online in a previous year and did not finish your return or if you need to start a new return for a prior year, you can still prepare your return using our TaxAct Online program.

Simply use the link we have provided below to either start a new return or sign in to an existing return. You will need to know the tax year and also the Username and Password that you set up for your account at the time you registered the account. If you do not remember the Username or Password, you can use the appropriate links on the sign in screen or view the related links below.

Access/Start Prior Year Return

TaxAct Desktop (Download/CD-ROM Users)

If you used our desktop software to create and file your income tax return(s) you will need to access the software on the computer you used to create the return. If you are no longer able to access the return on your computer, you will need to request a copy of your return from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

To request a copy of your return from the IRS:

  • Contact the IRS toll free at 1-800-829-1040.
  • Complete Form 4506-T Transcript of Electronic Filing (on the IRS site) at no cost.
  • Complete Form 4506 Copy of Income Tax Return (on the IRS site).

We recommend that you save your return on a removable media drive (thumb drive or CD-ROM) and also have an additional back up copy for your protection.
