Filing the income tax seems to be complicated and time consuming for some people. TaxAct changes this mindset by providing an efficient alternative when filing your income tax returns. Simply TaxAct is a software that helps people prepare their income tax return. Developed by 2nd Story Software, it has three available versions for ease of use – online, tablet, and software. The online version has three types to choose from - Free Federal Edition, Deluxe, and Ultimate Bundle. Aside from the Federal version, the other two versions are priced reasonably. Most of all, the software has tremendous offline support just in case. All versions have one hundred percent accuracy and help you get the maximum deductions and refund. 2nd Story Software has developed TaxAct in collaboration with the IRS and other private institutions related to taxation to make tax filing convenient for eligible taxpayers. The company, however, was Blucora in 2012 after a series of mergers and lawsuits.
