Lock in the "Preview Price" for delux federal and state (usually what they call their "ultimate bundle)," and free phone support ($7.95 value) all for $13.95.

My disclaimer: at the end of January 2012, they offered the 2011 ultimate bundle for $11.90, but that only included "free support by email," not the unlimited free phone support offered now, and there is no guarantee that this lower price will be offered again.

You are charged only when you print or e-file your completed return, view forms, or use the free phone help.

tax act online. I used it last year and it only allowed for online filing. When I tried to print out individual federal forms for my state taxes they all had a huge "DO NOT FILE" watermark printed on every page. This was a blatant marketing device to get me to purchase online filing for my state taxes, which are just as easily filled out by hand. I attempted to contact the company about this and received no satisfaction. After years with Kiplinger TaxCut, H & R Block TaxCut, etc, I am done...Turbo Tax for me this year, regardless of cost.

Yes, if you try to print indivdual forms, they may have this issue. One way, which worked for me was to download whole federal 1040 pdf file from which you can pci kand choose.

Deal still alive (with previous year login)!!

I paper filed/printed my federal and one of my states using tax act last year and years before, don't know why you had an issue. I have to file three returns, two states and a Federal usually one or two I end up printing and mailing using TaxAct.

how do you know if you have got the deal. i logged into my account using the link above. But no message of the lock in price.

Plagiarizing myself from another post...


Print the confirmation screen, buy you should also get an e-mail confirmation as well. You are charged only when you print or e-file your completed return.

You can log in and check: "My TaxAct" --> "My TaxAct Fees." Your current locked in rate will appear under "TaxAct Online Ultimate Bundle Edition." If the fee listed is higher than $13.95, you may need to create a new account to get the $13.95 rate, then import previous filing data from your other account. HTH.

Went thru OP's link today. Got $13.95 ultimate bundle. no problems. verified on my account screen. Thanks!

I have same issue, it logs onto my 2011 return but no note about a price for 2012.

Went through OP's link and worked for me too. Confirmed via fivetalents method - thank you all!!!

For those who couldn't get the $13.95 deal, use the OP's link, then click Start a New Return. You may need a new email address if you're an existing customer. If you log in with your existing info. you will see ~$18.

It still works with the old account signup! Thanks OP!

Worked for me! Thanks OP.

Anyone else having issues logging in? I get a "connecting to secure server" screen, then it boots me back to the login page.

I swear I signed up for this when I first saw the deal here. I have an e-mail indicating I locked in the price, but I don't have a receipt showing I paid.

hmm. not for the existing customers?

Worked for me on 1/25.

Worked for me just now. Thanks OP.

Must have been my locked down work computer. Working fine on the home computers. Taxes almost done.

I love TaxAct. What an amazing value. Thanks OP.

Worked for me. I had signed in with my credentials from last year already and it was giving my a higher price, so I clicked the link above, created a new user name, and after that I was still able to import my return from last year and get the cheaper price. Thanks.

Worked for me with existing username.

Worked fine for me with existing username, my filing tab showing the price of 13.95.

Thanks for the deal......

Just secured my price with same log in information as the last four years. If a lower price comes out, we can always "lock in" at that price. Thanks OP

thanks! Just in case I need it.........

Awesome! Thanks all. Just locked in $13.95 price with existing username from last year. Even better, I just got the confirmation email. Price is broken up: $7.95 for Federal and $6 for state. Great deal especially if you just need to e-file Federal.

Worked for me today. I locked in months ago, but for some reason it didn't stick. I called customer service, but was on hold for a long time. So I had to make a new account today.
