    "RIP OFF!!!!!"

    April 14, 2014   |   By SINBAD

    Version: TaxACT 2013 Free Federal Edition 2013

    Pros

    Fairly easy to follow instructions

    Cons

    They advertise that its free but this is false. Last year I paid $4 which wasn't bad. I figure I would pay it this time but not until the very end do they tell you it is $14.99. This is not fair. You are unable to get any real help from them. Unable to print or view my State return so I have no idea what I am filing. They say the state filing is free but when I tried to file my Fed by mail and print it out I was unable to view or print my state unless I agreed to pay the $14.99. I decided to go ahead and efile both since it was the same price but increased 27% since the previous year.
    So I proceed, give credit card info and submit. It says "pending" for 8 minutes then shows "Page cannot be displayed." Tried again, same outcome. So now they have my payment, credit card info and i have ZIP. I spent several days using this software only to get nothing in return. I have no idea if my taxes have been filed. All of this for a $25 State refund? I owe nothing to Fed.as I am on SSA

    Summary

    WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY. DON'T USE THIS SOFTWARE. They probably ripped me off for my money and I got NOTHING in return. No taxes filed or proof of taxes being filed. Not even a copy of my paperwork so i could just take it into the tax office and tell them about this. I am plain SOL.
    You are not advised until very end that this is not free as advertised. By then it is too late to do anything about it.
    Large increases in prices . Increased 27% this year.
    Watch out for the extra services they try to sell you. I never fall for that.
