How To Use a TaxAct Promotion Code or Coupon:
TaxAct prides itself on being less expensive than tax Goliaths like Turbo Tax and H&R Block, who spend millions advertising their “supposedly free” software. Even though TaxAct isn’t free for most customers, you can get up to an extra 20% off when you use a coupon. Here are two ways to get a discount on your order at taxact.com:
- Use a Promo Code: To apply a discount you used to have to enter a code at checkout. Now they don’t, and most promo codes are issued directly from TaxAct to customers
- Instant coupons: No need to copy a coupon code, as discount pricing is applied when you click a promotional link or banner. After doing so, you should see the retail price crossed out and the coupon applied like this:
Simple, right? I just had to delete the instructions about where to enter a promo code, because you really don’t need to enter one anymore!
