If you purchased the TaxACT Deluxe program only, no State Edition is included. If you purchased the TaxACT Ultimate Bundle you get the Deluxe (Federal) and your one State Edition chosen. Even though you purchased these items as a bundle, they still need to be downloaded separately.

The states are released as they are completed using the information from that particular state. For a list of approximate release dates for states please click here.

Most likely, you have already downloaded the Deluxe and now only need to download your State Edition.

To download your State Edition of TaxACT, you can go to:

1. Click here to go to the My Account & Downloads page where you will be able to access all the programs you have ordered from TaxACT.
