For the security of your personal information, a printed copy of your TaxACT Online return is only available by signing into your account and printing it yourself. We cannot mail, fax, or e-mail a paper or electronic copy.

Using your Online account, the print process will generate a Portable Document Format (PDF) file which can be viewed and printed from a PDF reader.

IMPORTANT: You must first have Adobe Acrobat Reader® installed.
