As a Professional Preparer using the TaxAct Professional software, you can choose different options of paying for your electronic filing. If you have not already sent EFIN verification information to TaxAct in the past, please review that information under Related Links near the end of this message.

We have listed the available electronic filing payment options below:


To pay per return please use the instructions below from within your TaxAct program:

  1. Click Preparer on the menu bar at the top of the program.
  2. Point to Master Information and then click Preparers.
  3. In the Preparer Name list on the right, click the pencil icon to the left of the preparer's name entry.
  4. Enter the PTIN (or SSN if not using a PTIN) in the field for it under Preparer Info.
  5. Click Electronic Filing Info
  6. Enter the EFIN in the appropriate field.
  7. Click the blue button Enter Credit Card.
  8. Fill out the credit card information according to the form, then click Continue lower right (you may have to scroll down).

Note. This credit card will be used for each e-file that you choose to submit. It will not need to be re-entered on each e-file.

Prepaid E-Filing

To purchase prepaid e-filing, we recommend contacting our professional support line at 319-731-2682.

Available options:

  1. Purchase a professional bundle which includes unlimited e-filing.
  2. Purchase increments of e-filing (available in $1 increments).

After purchasing a bundle that includes the unlimited e-filing or increments of prepaid amounts, please follow the steps listed above (under Pay-Per-Return) through Step 6.

Note. The Practice ID matches your professional program to your TaxAct account, so you must sign into your program with the correct username.

IMPORTANT. The unlimited e-filing begins after the unlimited e-filing has been paid in full. There will be no refunds given for any individual returns filed prior to purchasing the unlimited e-filing.
