CEDAR RAPIDS, IA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/03/14 -- TaxACT®, the critically acclaimed leader of digital and download tax preparation solutions, reminds taxpayers who still need to file 2013 tax returns not to panic and that affordable options are still available.
"Filing during the final days of tax season doesn't have to be expensive or stressful," said TaxACT President JoAnn Kintzel. "With TaxACT, you have everything you need at your fingertips to confidently prepare and e-file your own taxes without breaking the bank."
TaxACT offers several tips to save taxpayers the most time and money before the April 15 IRS filing deadline.
Just get started. Stop procrastinating. Gather your tax documents and go to www.taxact.com. Remember, you don't have to do your tax return in one fell swoop. TaxACT saves your work as you go, so you can start, stop and finish anytime, anywhere -- on your computer, tablet or smartphone.
Don't overpay to file. TaxACT is the leader of free and affordable digital tax preparation and e-filing solutions. TaxACT Online Free Federal and Deluxe include all e-fileable IRS forms -- the same forms other brands only include in more expensive paid products.
Filing a State return with Online Free Federal Edition on a browser or with TaxACT's tablet app is $17.99 -- half the cost of other brands. For maximum savings, Online Deluxe and State returns are $19.99.
Smartphone users with simple returns can file in minutes with TaxACT Express. Federal returns are free with the app, and a state return is $7.99.
Save time, import. TaxACT Free Federal imports vital information from returns prepared by the other top two brands. Deluxe users can also import last year's TaxACT return, W-2s and investments.
Need an extension? Don't pay for it. Estimate your taxes, pay any taxes owed and file IRS Form 4868 and any state extension forms for free with TaxACT Free Federal Edition. We'll remind you to file before the October 15 extension filing deadline.
Pay by the deadline. Even if you can't pay your tax bill in full, pay as much as you can by April 15 in order to avoid penalties and interest. TaxACT offers easy, last-minute tax payment options: direct withdrawal, credit card and EFTPS (U.S. Department of Treasury's online tax payment system).
After filing, know your status. Keep track of your e-filed returns and federal refund at efstatus.taxact.com or with Tax Return Status by TaxACT -- a free mobile app for all taxpayers, not just TaxACT customers.
