How do I determine which product format is right for me?

CD/Download

Customers who wish to save a copy of their tax return file on their computer hard drive or on a disk need to order a CD and/or downloadable version of TaxACT. Purchasing a CD does mean a shipping and handling charge is added to the order total. A customer ordering a CD will also have the ability to download the product from their personal download page accessed directly from our web site. A download-only customer will be able to retrieve their product immediately after purchase by visiting their personal download page.

TaxACT Online (Over the Web)

TaxACT Online is a web-based version (using your web browser) of TaxACT. There is no software to install. Your return is safely & securely stored behind a firewall on our state-of-the-art servers using the latest in encryption technology. TaxACT Online customers can gain access to their returns by using their TaxACT Online username and password.


How can I place an order for TaxACT products?

TaxACT Online customers can visit www.taxactonline.com to begin their return for 2013. The IRS will not accept e-filed returns for the new tax year until the 2nd week of January 2014; so electronic filing will not be an available service until the IRS opens for the new tax year.

CD or download customers can place an order for our products 24 hours a day from our web site at http://www.taxact.com.

Orders can be placed by phone at 1-800-573-4287 during normal business hours.
