TaxACT Puts Taxpayers First in Line for IRS E-File Processing and Maximum Refunds

Taxpayers Can E-File Their Federal and State Tax Returns Now With TaxACT

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/17/13 -- Although the IRS will start processing tax returns about eight days later than usual this year, taxpayers can still prepare and e-file now with TaxACT®. TaxACT will submit all early e-filed returns as soon as the IRS begins accepting them without further action from the taxpayer.

The IRS has already released most forms early filers tend to need. "The overwhelming majority of taxpayers can prepare and e-file returns today, regardless of IRS delays," said TaxACT President JoAnn Kintzel. "Get it done now and be first in line when the IRS begins accepting returns from TaxACT and other providers on January 30."

If a return includes a form not yet available, TaxACT's notification process automatically alerts the customer when it is ready, allowing them to finish the return and e-file immediately.

The IRS processes returns and refunds on a first come, first served basis. Based on IRS-issued refund guidelines, a taxpayer who e-files on January 30 could have their refund direct deposited in early February.

Fast, affordable refund options
TaxACT Online® federal and state products include free e-file. Combined with direct deposit, e-file is the fastest way taxpayers can receive their refunds.

TaxACT offers additional convenient refund options:

  • Receive your refund on a TaxACT prepaid debit card for a fraction of the cost of other solutions.
  • Pay for TaxACT Online product fees by deducting the amount from your refund.
  • Use all or part of your refund to purchase U.S. Savings Bonds in increments of $50.

After e-filing, TaxACT customers can check the status of e-filed returns and federal refunds 24/7 on a computer, mobile phone, or with TaxACT Central™, a free companion app for Android and Apple devices. TaxACT also offers email and text message notifications.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
