TaxCatalyst Income Tax Prep App Reviews

  • Great app, secure and private

    By JBC1468
    Update Feb 2018: They actually improved the app and made it easier to use. I started it on my old phone but then got a new iPhone 8 Plus. Was able to use app to backup my file via iCloud (read: secure) and restore it to my new phone. Still works well for California and federal filings. Happy filing! Original Review: Great app that keeps my info secure and safe on the privacy of my own device. App caught errors and inconsistencies I made and pointed out exactly which fields needed to be fixed. App is free until filing, which was nice to be able to give it a try first. Filing was easy a good value. Definitely worked well for California and Federal filings.
  • Helpful support

    I had an issue with my prior year AGI and had to contact customer support to do another efile. They responded fast and helped me get my return sent with the irs. Good job on the app!
  • Worked perfectly

    By Patch Gran
    I really like this app. It supports all of my taxes so I have no complaints. Efiling worked perfectly for me last year too. I got 2 emails letting me know my returns were accepted. 1 for federal and 1 for CA and it took only about 20 mins to let me know from the time I hit submit.
  • Simply amazing

    By dissapoi
    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

    By Lc488
    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.
  • Saved me money

    By AnthroMama
    This app was easy to use. I saved money e-filing federal and state and on the cost of the software. In the past I have used Turbo Tax and H&R Block and always ended up paying more than $100 each time for the software then the additional fees to file at both Federal and State level. This only cost me $1.99 for federal and $9.99 for state. I definitely recommend it.
  • Awesome app!

    Awesome app! Really simple and easy to use which made filing taxes for me this year super easy!!
  • Simple and Straightforward

    By Chemteacher6.022
    I was looking for a tax app that did not have the hidden fees found in programs like TurboTax. Federal filing was a flat rate of $1.99 and state was $9.99. Aside from the right price point, TaxCatalyst is very user-friendly, has a nice interface, was quick to submit, and best of all, my data was saved for the next year's filing. I would definitely recommend to anyone with simple taxes to do.
  • Great app

    By Territax
    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.
  • Love this app

    By Asscrackbandit
    Simple and easy to use. Everything was straightforward and I got my tax return done very quickly. Works great unless you have a really complicated tax situation.
