After e-filing both Federal and State tax returns with TaxAct, we noticed that: 1. The Child Tax credit of $1,000 is missing (not taken off the tax we owe). The TaxAct system should do it automatically for the child who yet didn't turn 17 y.o by the end of the taxable year 2015. Our younger son Daniel N. was born in May, 1999, so he is still 16 y.o. now and will turn 17 only in May, 2016. We need to get $1,000 child tax credit from the tax we...

Have been using TT for 20+ years. Had a large refund this year, arranged for the auto deposit. After the standard 3 weeks, TT sends me a note saying I will see funds deposited in a day or so. After a week and no deposit, I contact the IRS. IRS indicates they deposited a week previously. Call TT using the 800 number on the notification, and after going to two additional 800 numbers (the first two were wrong) an operator tells me they 'held onto...

This incident started in 2014 by them sending me at letter stating I owe $7,544 for 2012. I sent a letter saying I forgot to report my 1099, a simple error, which I provided showing I lost money not gained on dividends. So I should not owe. They sent another letter saying I still owe the money in 90 days; or we go to court. I then sent 2 faxes and 2 letters explaining I forgot to report my 1099, which I provided and circled the losses. two...

I had been waiting on my federal tax check when I got a letter in the mail stating that it had been rejected for direct deposit and sent back to the IRS and I had to wait 2-4 weeks for it to come in the mail. And of course was a paper check and without a bank account costs over $100 to get cashed. I called to find out why it was sent back. No one could give me an answer. I checked to make sure I has the right routing and account numbers down,...

So in 2012, I get a surprise when preparing my taxes. I owe an alternative minimum tax for the first time. I did not even know such a thing existed. Yes, I had a good year in 2012. My best year, but I am not rich. I think the IRS is rich though if the take 35% from everyone like they are taking from me. How can they not balance the budget? I am a democrat. I believe in taxes. I know they are necessary. I believe in fair share...

I filed my 2009 federal, state, and non resident state forms on H&R Block website. Their software put the wrong information on my mass state form and 3 years later I receive a bill from the IRS. When all the documentation was submitted to H&R Block they said it wasn't their problem They do not guarantee anything and they are extremely over rated and expensive!!! Never Free! The worst thing is even on 2012 tax returns THEY STILL HAVE...

I had to do an amended tax due to waiting for congress to finish with tax laws that effected my ability to claim student credit (stall tactics because they don't have the money to pay out). I was finally able to submit my amended tax return. I waited over a month and no money arrived. I then got a letter from the IRS asking for a form that I had already sent them. Stall tactics? I think so! I am still waiting and I want to know can I sue the...

I used Turbo tax waited for for my tax return which I elected to have direct deposited onto the Netspend Visa card that Turbo tax offers because it was suppose to be faster then the the traditional check from IRS. I received my Netspend card and went through the process of activating it, I even loaded my money on the card so that I could use it to make sure it worked. I had the card for two months using it during that two months. Now the time...
