Just about done with my taxes using TaxAct Online for the 2nd year. Here are some of my gripes. See pros and cons below.

Pros
  • Online tax filing is handy without the need to install software. Buying a DVD, installing, then waiting for all the updates is a hassle when you're ready to start, but your program is not.
  • The step by step process is generally good, but I have a few cons as listed below.
Cons
  • Used this last year, but no record of my use when I started my taxes this year and had to enter all our personal information from scratch.
  • Some steps were written in government speak like they ripped it straight from the IRS web site rather than in layman's terms.
  • Some things I can deduct with TurboTax I cannot find with TaxAct
