Preparing for Next Year

TaxAct® provides tools to help you plan for next year’s tax return. 

Accessing planning tools:

While viewing your return, click Next Year. On smaller devices, click  in the upper left-hand corner, then choose Next Year.

Available tools include:

  • Loan Calculator - Calculate payments based on loan amount, interest rate, and loan period. Plus, view and print your payment schedule.
  • Tax Calculator - Perform what-if scenarios with your federal income tax return without adjusting your actual numbers. This feature summarizes your tax return, and gives you the ability to make adjustments, positive or negative, to see the impact on your taxes.
