I found Tax990 to be user friendly, accurate, concise, inexpensive and easy to navigate. The response from the help team is prompt and correct. I've been doing these for years. I would recommend others do the same.

Adrian Dieleman

Tax990 has benefited the filing process, that it's so much easier than trying to do it by hand filing. It's quicker and it's far more accurate because of the audit feature. I wish I had been using it for a long time.

Dr. Wesley Proctor

I love the simplicity of Tax990 because if I made any mistakes, it will alert me. Technical support person literally got me on the phone and walked me through the process. Tax990 is very user friendly and the software is very easy to navigate.

Jeff Moskovitz

I’ve been using Tax990 for three years now. I use any number of different services but I didn't find a single one of them had everything I needed. Another great thing I find is that the support people are quite responsive, they’re quick, they're accurate and they’re reliable.

Susan Onan-Schwartz

We were really happy to find Tax990. We weren’t excited about going to e-file when the mandate came out but after using Tax990, it really has helped with the process because I don't miss things by having remainders. Walked through all the different sections. It has helped me be able to complete the forms without having to hire a CPA.

Lillian Alonzo Marin

Tax990 makes it so easy to go through every question function to fill in the taxes. Tax990 makes everything in the same place and we don't go through any hassles. I would definitely recommend it to all nonprofits.

Casey Cruciano

Tax990 has really benefited our annual filing process because it cuts down the amount of time we have to file and get all of our paperwork in because instead of going through a third person we can just directly enter all information and do it all in one day.

Robert Michael Sorrells

I found Tax990 to be user friendly, accurate, concise, inexpensive and easy to navigate. The response from the help team is prompt and correct. I've been doing these for years. I would recommend others do the same.
