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.

We update TaxCaster to the new tax year around the end of October. This gives our customers that are filing their taxes through the extension season (October 15th), the current tax year.
You can use the current app with 2018 tax laws in it to get a good ballpark estimate for 2019, and in October we'll update it with the latest 2019 tax law changes as they come in.

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.

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
Accurate projection of your tax refund
I used this app last year before I started my taxes, just to see how much I would get back, and it was right on the money! Did it again this year and it's looking just as good. Highly recommended.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
