Editors' Review

TXF Creator attempts to save you time and effort with its smooth ability to convert financial files from online investment sites and third-party financial software into tax-friendly formats. Its incredibly simple operation and fast results make for a sure-fire hit with those who invest a lot and file their own taxes.

The program's interface surely could have been more professional; however, its stark, white-space-heavy design did help us stay focused on the task at hand. We never felt confused or lost, thanks to its simplicity, or distracted, thanks to its dullness. The onscreen instructions break down the entire process into seven steps. We were able to pull our investment files from a variety of online sources like E-Trade and Scottrade. From there we simply clicked a few buttons and TFX Creator converted our file to TXF format. We didn't have the proper tax software (such as TurboTax) to test our TXF file with, but our files effortlessly converted and maintained all the information, thanks to TFX Creator's extensive compatibility. The program also offers a handy feature for tracking your history, which seems useful for those with several different accounts to manage and convert. We were pleased with this program's simplicity, but we'd liked to see a more appealing layout.

TXF Creator has a trial limit of 10 stock trades per TXF file. It comes as a compressed file. While its layout was boring, the overall program was simple, and we recommend it.

"The best tool I ever bought for schedule D calculations"

March 17, 2011  |  By kengodfrey99

 |  Version: TXF Creator 3.0

Pros

This tax tool is very straightforward to use. It is very nice that the instructions for downloading trades from brokers' sites are included on the first screen of TXF Creator. No trouble in downloading trades from broker and generating .txf files.

Cons

None at all!!!

Summary

This tax tool is worth the money you pay and more.

March 12, 2011  |  By wirelessnet

Pros

TXF Creator does an amazing job at converting capital gains in the format of csv files and importing into taxcut. It is simple and very inexpensive. Best of all, it works.

Cons

It is kind of slow at processing thousands of trade records. Should I complain about this when I only paid 13 bucks. nope!

Summary

Give it a try! I am sure you will be pleased. no joke.

"A useful and inexpensive tax utility for Fidelity gains"

March 08, 2011  |  By scott73a

 |  Version: TXF Creator 3.0

Pros

This little tool is very simple to use and works flawlessly with my fidelity realized gains/losses. It saved me a lot of time preparing the schedule d portion in turbo tax.

Their customer service is very helpful.

Cons

The online documentation for importing txf files into turbo tax is outdated. Their customer support was responsive and sent me detailed instructions for importing generated txf files into turbo tax.

Summary

This tax tool helps preparing schedule D inexpensively. It does save money and time (money too). Send email to their customer support support@txf-express.com if you run into any difficulties. The responses are immediate, normally within a few hours.
