Story
Tagline
The most complete free tax solution for everyone.
Introduction
TaxAct®, founded in 1998, specializes in tax preparation software and Web-based services. Our flagship product, TaxACT, provides its users the highest degree of accuracy and completeness and is designed by in-house programmers, CPAs (Certified Public Accountants), and tax accountants.
 

A True David and Goliath Story

TaxACT was created from the ashes of a product called Personal Tax Edge marketed by Parsons Technology. In 1994, Intuit, the makers of TurboTax, acquired Parsons Technology and Personal Tax Edge, their next closest competitor. By 1997, Personal Tax Edge was gone, but the discontinuation of Personal Tax Edge led the founders of 2nd Story Software (all of whom had worked on the Personal Tax Edge product) to create TaxACT. Starting with a simple goal to provide high quality tax preparation software to taxpayers at an affordable price, TaxACT launched in 1998. In less than a decade, 2nd Story Software claimed its place amongst the Goliaths of the industry, becoming the number two destination for online tax preparation.
