“I’ve been using Taxbrain since 2002. I was surfing the web trying to find tax prep, and Taxbrain was the first on the list. I reviewed it and liked what I saw, and have been using since.”

Drew H / Rochester, NY

“In the past, I was really naive about doing taxes myself and somewhat hesitant to do them myself online. Last year my taxes were more complicated. I had to reach out for help and I found the chat service to be invaluable. They were expedient, helpful and knowledgeable.”

Joel A / Pasadena, CA

“I love how Taxbrain takes all of the hard stuff and makes it easy for me to understand. I can do my own taxes! Whenever I needed help, the customer service has always been there. And I love the prices.”

Carla S / Durham, NC
