3. Easily import your tax data from another software provider
We get it — switching tax software is cumbersome because your information is already stored with the other guy, and you don’t want to start over.
If that thought is overwhelming, let’s ease your worries a bit.
Switching to TaxAct from your previous online tax provider is simple.2 All you need to do is upload a PDF of your prior year’s return, and your tax data will automatically import directly onto your return within your TaxAct account. It’s seriously that easy. That makes switching to a software provider that costs less a no-brainer.
