    Doesn't let me enter any numbers. Not a good app for taxes if it can't do something so simple. Don't waste your time. Go to TurboTax Full Review

    It doesn't work! I tried it multiple times on my S8 & my Tab 2 tablet. I could never get farther than the home page on my smartphone. On the tablet I got to the start of my return & it stopped responding while loading the basic info page every time. Terrible app!! Full Review

    I just need to see my agi and it will NOT come up anywhere. It will not print. Will not download onto my phone. This is junk. I filed my taxes but have nothing to save for my records. I am furious. JUNK. HARD TO NAVIGATE. WILL NEVER USE AGAIN. Full Review

    This app misses the mark. It is plague with constant lockups and crashes and it needs an emailed pin every time you log in. You will be entering a pin frequently too because of the above mentioned lockups and the back button closing the app instead of actually going back. Full Review

    Misses the mark on every level. Constant log in issues and have to have a pin emailed/text EVERY TIME you log in. You cannot even see the outcome or progress until you are ready to file Full Review

    Have used the service for years and really like it, but the app leaves a lot to be desired. For 1 it takes 5 minutes or more to receive the pin number that you're required to enter everytime you reopen it. Full Review

    Poorly designed app. Every time you switch away you're required to fully login again plus enter a confirmation code sent to your email. Many of the data entry fields require typing in several times for it to display properly . Terrible app! Full Review

    The app crashes frequently on my Galaxy s6. Requires confirmation code every time you log in. Doesn't give you the option to deduct fees from tax refund unless you're on the full website. And if your return gets denied it's a hassle to change the information. If you don't know what you're doing I recommend TurboTax or H&R Block Full Review

    Awful set up... Every time you switch screens..such as to view a tax form then switch back. It requires complete login including sending a security code to email or phone.. Poor design. I was hopeful but after working on my parents taxes for about 30 minutes I've had to login and get security code at least a half dozen times. Uninstalling this time consuming joke of an app. Full Review

    It is annoying to having to enter a verification code, everytime i am logging in with my phone. I understand the need for security, but once i verify i am logging in with the app, the app should have a way of knowing i already verified it was actually me logging in. I like taxact, but this annoyance may be the push to TurboTax app this year. Full Review

    It's a fast, easy-to-use app, but it crashes routinely on things like scanning W-2s, or moving from page to page. I'd happily up the rating if that gets resolved. Full Review

    Wouldn't let me use a password manager to log in. It explicitly needs me typing my password. I think the intention here is to force users to have short insecure passwords. Full Review

    The app was fine until I went to submit my return then it stuck me in a never ending loop of verifying and signing over and over. I finally had to log into the website to continue it. I wouldn't bother using this app. Full Review

    Worked great until trying to sign on to do taxes for 2016. The screen capture thing to see if you're a bot won't let me get by. I've tried 40 times so far with no success. There has to be another way to prove I'm me. Full Review

    Christopher Richards Published date: April 29, 2017

    Garbage: This thing was supposed alert me to any mistakes, then i get an email some days later saying it was rejected because the name and ss number do not match the records. I go to correct my return, and its gone, and the app seems to think i want to start a new one. The captcha algorithm with the selecting of ambiguous images is just plain stupid. So now i have to file my return ALLLL OVER AGAIN and its now late. Who ever made this app deserves their hands broken. Full Review

    Matt Goodman Published date: April 18, 2017

    Such a bad app. The photo only imported about half the info and all the dollar amounts were off by a penny? If you do anything else with your phone before you're finished (ie use your calculator app for a second) you'll have to login again, get another security code, do another captcha image, and THEN you'll find that all changes you'd made to the form were lost. Start over. If you're unsure how to fill out any part of the form you're on your own, there are no buttons for help, explanations, etc. ...Just so many things make this app amateurish and bad.
