TaxAct

Summary

4.8 Stars 4.8 / 5 stars based on 26 Reviews

TaxAct offers the least expensive tax return software compared to their competitors: ranging from 46% cheaper than TurboTax to 69% cheaper than TaxBrain. While the cheapest software usually means less features, that's not the case with TaxAct. While the design might not be as nice as TurboTax's, the navigation is just as intuitive and easy to use.
