TaxAct online says it requires 2.0 or above. I have 3.1 and TaxAct online can't locate my TaxAct App contribution account which means I have to go back and re-enter a year's worth of donations. Not worth the hassle. Oh by the way, it's now April 2017. When will this be updated for the current year? UPDATE: May 2017. Can now enter donations for the current year. Waiting until tax filing for 2017 to see if the bugs are fixed.
Such a good idea; such a poor execution. If you can get through the annoyance of trying to use this awful program for recording your donations, then it is a dream come true at tax time. One big issue is if you want to itemize items that are not in the list. You can list them under "Other," but when you are done, you will be kicked all the way out to the home screen. You have to find the day for this donation and continue from there. As I scroll through the list of categories, trying to find the right place to enter the non-clothing item, the screen opens up the keyboard so I can type. I don't want to type. I want to scroll. This program is fiddly and annoying. The more I use it, the more I hate it. If you ONLY donate clothing, it is fine, but everything else is irritating as all hell.
Works ok. Taxact charges you to download info from this app for your tax return. They have gotten rather expensive. Used to be $30 to file federal and state. I paid $75 today! Quite an increase. Should just pay someone to do it. Would be nice if this tracked mileage, too.
I installed it and it was working great. Tried to go back and look at 2016 before I import and keep getting request failure. The donation assist doesn't work on the website (says it will be available at a later date, which probably means never) and now it's not working in the app. Time to look for new tax software.
Horrible. I tried using this for my 2016 donations, mostly because the TaxAct site is horrible for quickly entering donations. This app is a little easier... but it still requires too many "clicks" to do simple things like set a date or set the charity. I suggest that the designers/developers use this to enter 10 donations and see how they like it. But the big kick in the face came when I tried to import the donations to the main TaxAct site. "This feature is not currently available. Look for it in a future program update of TaxAct!" WTH? I'm using the same username and password, using the latest version of the app. Not cool.
Ridiculous Stupid app logs you out for "security reasons". It's just plain stupid. I could maybe tolerate if the app wasn't being used for a certain length of time, but being active & inputting donations in one after another without a break, it signs you out while in the middle of selecting items, going menu to menu. This app was so much easier to use last year & the year before. (That was fixed BUT WILL NOT IMPORT! I'VE BEEN A FAITHFUL USER OF TAXACT SINCE AT LEAST 2000, WILL NOT USE NEXT YEAR, IT'S BECOME CRAP. :-(
