Easy to use!
I used your system last year for the first time, and I am impressed with how easy it was. My overall experience with your website is good, and it is fairly easy to understand with quite a few helpful options.
Many thanks to Crissy in tech support, who answered my many questions very timely. I am a first-time user and a retired CPA, and now the Assistant Treasurer of Orlando Garden Club. This program is awesome to file and saves us big money. Thanks
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.
Excellent Live Support!
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.
Made our filing affordable!
Doing Tax Returns is never fun! Your software has given me the ability to do it myself. We are a small non-profit and simply cannot afford Professional Tax Accountant Audited Returns. Thank you!
This was my first time sending electronically. This site was very easy to use and filled in all of our information, so it saved me a lot of time. And the best part is that the IRS has already received it and notified me. Thank you, it was a great experience.
Prompt Customer Support
This was a pretty good experience. I would use your service again. Prompt customer support and the audit function worked well. Caught all my errors! Thanks.
This has been a very easy process. I like the website. I’ll check back with more reviews once I get a receipt from the IRS. Thanks for making this easy. Now I can relax knowing that I am current with my 990 forms. Thanks.
Great! User-friendly, and the access to form instructions saves a LOT of logging on the IRS website and searching for the correct form. I am a retired CPA with 43 years of tax prep and review work, and based on my first exposure, this is a great product!
