You guys made it easy for me to file the 990 N for our local Food Pantry. It was self-explanatory, and I was done in a jiffy. Glad it is all behind me now! I will choose you guys again next year!
Loved the Audit Feature!
First time filing electronically. I had prepared it manually before filing, which made it quicker and easier for me. Loved the audit feature as it helped me make sure I hadn’t completed something incorrectly. Everything worked out great!
Once again, you guys saved the day. Despite my best efforts, a timely, accurate return was filed. With last year’s data rolled over to the current year, the filing was even easier. I almost cannot wait for next year.

Only called once before using the software, but I got a real live person who was well-spoken and answered my questions immediately. Uncommonly rare these days. Excellent experience.
