Great Mobile Tax Calculator, I Just Wish I Could See My State Tax Estimate As Well.

This app has definitely helped me with estimating my federal tax refund. My only wish with this tax estimator is to give the user the ability to see their state tax estimate in addition to seeing their federal tax estimate.

*Also I’d like to say thank you to the developer for listening to my prior complaint not only fixing the issue, but also responding to me with a message letting me know you guys updated the app with a fix for the issue I was having.

Hi BayRider2015,

Just wanted to reach out to let you know that we have fixed the issue with not being able to see your input values when in dark mode. If you download the 11.1 version, you will have the fix. Thanks again for using TaxCaster!

Missing a crucial part

It doesn’t account for ACA healthcare (Obamacare) and federal discounts received, which was the crucial thing I needed it for. Discounts are granted based off estimated AGI at the start of the year, if your AGI ends up higher at the end of the year, you have to pay back the discount at tax time. And If you are over the amount to qualify, you pay it ALL back and end up owning THOUSANDS of dollars on your tax return. That single aspect can swing your tax refund in a huge way, and it’s not included in this app as far as I can tell.

Beyond that, it was easy to use and the interface was pleasant. Just totally inaccurate for our situation.

Hi ladyofdragons,

Thanks for the feedback! As you've noticed, TaxCaster is a refund estimator and doesn't have all of the possible tax situations, but the most common ones that people have. If you're not seeing your situation covered, you can use TurboTax to get an estimate, and file there if you want to. We'll pass your feedback to our product team as well to consider for our roadmap in the future - TaxCaster Mobile Team

Where’s 2019 TaxCaster?

2018 version good. Will you have. 2019 version anytime soon or do we use the current app?

Update: Why not have two entry points for filers? One for 2018 filers on extensions and one for 2019? I’m sure the number of 2019 filers outnumber the 2018 filers working on extensions. Putting out the 2019 calculator in late October doesn’t leave much time to make any adjustments. Thanks for first response.
