Good afternoon everyone,

Has anyone experienced TaxAct inaccuracy related to filing 'Homeowner Credit Repayment' with Form 5405?

My experience, in completing the interview process for homeowner credit repayment: for some reason TaxAct stated that home was purchased by relative on Line E of Form 5405, when this is not the case at all. There was no question in the 5-step interview process even inquiring if home was purchased from a relative. In attempting to override this Taxact error on the 5405, an alert warns me that filing electronically is not possible when overriding a calculated field.

I sent an email to TaxAct support, with their response to "Read the interview questions a little more carefully, as this question is there".

Any helpful suggestions on troubleshooting this program are most welcome, otherwise I will not be filing taxes with TaxAct.
