To file a return in TaxAct®, you MUST complete the filing steps in the program. If you have not completed the steps below for filing electronically or filing a paper return, your return has NOT been filed. Review the information for your filing method to ensure your return has been filed.
You should receive an email within 24-48 hours indicating that your return has been received by TaxAct and transmitted to the IRS. Later, you will receive a second e-mail indicating the status of your return (accepted or rejected).
After transmitting your return, it is your responsibility to ensure that it is accepted by the IRS or state agency. If you do not receive an email confirmation or acceptance, you can check the status of your electronically filed returns using the TaxAct E-File and Tax Refund Status webpage.
