See update below. TaxSlayer could not transfer the amount from a Form to the appropriate line on the 1040 for 2019. I couldn’t even access the Form without paying, but I didn’t want to pay until I was sure it would then take the correct amount, and recalculate everything accurately. Eventually a customer service rep walked me through an “override” which at least got my total calculations correct. But, AFTER I had filed, I realized their “override” changed the amount on the 1099 big deal, as it didn’t need to be sent to the IRS. EXCEPT TaxSlayer apparently sent “their” version to the IRS, which could cause me a problem. Maybe they will fix this glitch for next year? It’s probably an unusual situation, but...still....I am not real happy.
Update: 2of them, actually. First, last year I got a call from TaxSlayer apologizing for the problem, promising to fix it for 2020, and refunding the fee I had paid. Second, I just tried it for my 2020 taxes... it still has a small issue that makes it more difficult than it should be, but they essentially fixed the problem. As a result, I’m raising the stars from 2 to 5. And, even last year, every person I talked to was very was just a system problem.

Great app

For basic 1040 ez returns hands down the best app available. Took me less than 30 mins to get my info typed in and saved. Took longer to try and setup my wireless printer and sync with iPad to print return. Very user friendly as always will help guide you step by step. You have to be a complete moron to not be able to use this app. My only complaint would be that after wasting over an hour setting up my wireless printer the print button in the app would not allow me to print from my iPad. So I’ll just get on my laptop to print no biggie. Yes TurboTax is very quick with there scan and go but they will overcharge the crap out of you. As always no surprise fees with TaxSlayer. I used TurboTax once years ago and paid over 120 to process my return, as always taxslayer charged a fair flat rate 53 dollars. Thanks again for the fast fair tax service Taxslayer.

Taxes. On your phone.

This couldn’t have been any easier on a mobile device. I jumped into it on my MacBook a few months ago to see what my tax situation was looking like and easily just wrapped up the loose ends on my iPhone in a matter of minutes. Seriously, a few years ago I would have never done my taxes on a phone, but TaxSlayer is ahead of the curve with mobile-first optimizations. I did do diligence and ran my numbers through other software just to see if the money I owed was less. Nope! TaxSlayer got everything. Taxes done been slayed!!!
