Subject: TaxAct is acting bizarrely Date: 2/12/2006 10:35 AM

Just curious if anyone else is using to file their taxes this year...and, if so, if you notice it acting strangely.

This is my third year using it, but I'm having a lot of problems with it. My financial data/life events is nearly identical this year to last year (same deductions, amounts almost the same, etc.). Yet TaxAct is inflating my "deductions total" by about 250% (!). This seems wonderful on the surface, because it means I'm getting a HUGE refund. But I know, based on my last two years of similar returns, that the numbers are simply wrong.

I have stepped through all of the screens and checked the inputted data, and everything seems right. But the numbers are still wacky and TaxAct won't let me look at what it's putting on the Schedule A until I pay for/file the return.

I'm at my wits' end. I'll try calling them next week. But I was curious if I'm alone in this experience. Thanks!
