TaxAct has established itself as one of the leading names in online tax software. While TaxAct is no longer free for most people, they’ve upped their game and now offer much more robust products including a Self-Employed edition. So, while you now have to pay, it’s actually better and you’ll probably get a bigger refund.
So, how much does it cost to file your taxes with TaxAct? That depends on whether you choose to file online or download software, which Edition you need, and when you e-file your return. Prices are lower at the beginning of the tax season, but if you can’t file early, don’t worry.
Here is the updated discount pricing for 2022 including state filing fees and Professional editions. (Hurry, as these prices may increase after March 15th, 2022!)
