Customer Reviews

Simply amazing


This is a great app to do your taxes. It's very simple and easy to use. There are no hidden fees and it's definitely worth using

Super easy and simple


This app was super easy to use. I like to check out different tax software before I decide on what to use to file, and taxcatalyst is tops. Unlike turbotax, it didn't ask me every other screen whether I wanted to buy an upgrade. The fees are simple and cheap! Other tax software is super clunky; this one is totally streamlined. It walked me through everything I needed. I recommend all my friends to use it, and I will totally be back next year.

Great app


I have used other online tax programs as well as professional tax preparers and I found this app to be very easy to use. The layout is easy to follow and helps you to pay attention to details in your return. It helped me to be both efficient and thorough in my data input. I found this app a good replacement to my very pricey and time consuming professional tax preparer. I would recommend it, and have.
