  • Move over HR Block

    Feb 7, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to understand forms, will kick back mistakes
    Cons: Will not help you with deductions you are not certain about.

    Summary: We filed our taxes last year using Taxslayer.com and I purposely waited 12 months, just in case we would get a nasty letter from the IRS telling us we did it all wrong and we owed them a bundle. To date we have not received a letter from the IRS, so I ... read more

  • Used to be good, but surcharges for every service not worth it.

    Feb 28, 2011 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: It gets your taxes to the IRS. Costs about what everyone else does.
    Cons: Clunky, annoying interface. Additional fees for everything. Price not as advertised. Uses wrong forms.

    Summary: I have used TaxSlayer since 2004, but will not be using them this tax year. They have gradually increased the price for their service to $15 for federal and state, which is a reasonable price and about what all other services charge. The problem I ... read more

  • TaxSlayer Great for Fed/State filings

    Feb 14, 2011 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cheap (FREE?).  Easy to fill out.  Doesn't dun you about extra services.
    Cons: They could have made it easier to find "Print Your Return"

    Summary: I've used TaxAct.com for 2008 & 2009 tax filings, but this year I became fed up with the constant dunning to buy services like access to your records ($9.95), and dozens of enhancements few people need.  TaxAct.com makes you go through every ... read more

  • Dont Make the Same Mistake I Did!!!

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The Wizard to help beginners through.
    Cons: NO Customer Support
    No way to call them
    They DONT answer eMail
    Program times out

    Summary: This turned out horribly for me, but started great. I have always went to H and R Block in the past, but have grown sick with the fee's. I decided to try Taxslayer against my wifes wishes. I had no trouble with putting in my info, and seemed like ... read more

  • TaxSlayer's software is plagued with errors and customer support is non existant.

    Jan 18, 2009 by
    Not yet rated.
    Pros: Inexpensive
    Can file both federal and state taxes.
    Simple interface.
    Cons: Software errors abound.
    Return rejected due to taxslayer's errors.
    Terrible customer support.

    Summary: I typically file my taxes very early in the year (i.e. end of February at the latest) using some sort of on-line software.  I filed my 2008 taxes using TaxSlayer.  It appealed to me because I have a low income and could file both my federal and ... read more

  • TaxSlayer.com failed to send me IRS reject announcement

    Jul 14, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: IRS finally settled it.
    Cons: If I had owed the IRS, I would have had to pay a penalty.

    Summary: TaxSlayer failed to send me a IRS reject announcement. When I filed my taxes on April 2, 2008, TaxSlayer approved it on April 8th. So I thought everything was okay. Come the middle part of June, I contacted the IRS as to WHY I had not yet received my ... read more

    Feb 8, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Fast, simple, good tech support, flow of data entry, did I mention fast.
    Cons: Download troubles, not for the tax impaired.

    Summary: I have done my own taxes for years. (Even the years I have tried various tax services like H&R Block) I must say, this is the first year I have actually enjoyed doing my taxes. Last year I used TurboTax, with some success. (It worked good, with minimal ... read more

    Nov 26, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Low cost option that is easy to use.
    Cons: Doesn't support every state.

    Summary: TaxSlayer helped me figure out what forms and schedules to use by asking simple questions throughout the program. The questions that the program asked me were easy to understand, which was a big help for someone who doesn't know taxes like me. The ... read more

    Pros: Free Software; Easy to follow software

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Very easy to use and inexpensive.
    Cons: Large download.

    Summary: TaxSlayer was a very easy program to use. Despite the 9.5 megabyte download, it was the best program I have found to do my taxes. At the cost of only $9.95 to e-file federal and state taxes for direct deposit, it is the best bargain I have found. The ... read more

    Rated Show
    Pros: If you know what you're doing, you can e-file without paying TurboTax's prices.
    Cons: Booby-trap fees if you don't select the right options.
    Website's pretty clunky.

    Summary: I have used TaxSlayer for several years succesfully. It seems like every year there are extra tricks that add on fees if you're not careful, but if you know how to avoid them the service is still fine.For example, when I was ready to submit my ... read more

    Summary: I have used taxslayer for 2 years.  It is easy to use and the value is good. This year however, I made a mistake and didn't enter my state withholding tax.  I went back to change it and file an amended return. Taxslayer wants to charge ... read more

    Summary: It isn't free.   My fees were $14.95 for fed and $4.95 for state AND a bank refund processing fee of $29.95 PER  return.   Needless to say, I stopped the filing process and won't go back.  I'm reporting them to every agency ... read more

    Cons: No more data carry over from year to year. Extra charges to view prior returns.

    Summary: I am a returning TaxSlayer customer for several years. My prior experience have been great. This year... Not so much. TaxSlayer no longer carries over prior year data, and to pull up prior years, you have to pay them an additional ... read more
