The Taxbrain is different than many other popular software programs in a way that they collect the data. There are data screens to be filled out. Due to this, it is taken as one of the fastest and easiest tax filing which does not involve many deductions. The only complaint from previous users about this style is that every page that opens up in this form should be completed before any corrections are made on any earlier filled out page.

The programmer’s approach was to make filling up the forms easier. This was achieved, but then checks are not as systematic as various other tax software programs, and also there isn’t any kind tax assistance provided with this package. For computer users who do not wish to download the software to their system, this one is for you. This one is completely a web based process. You are simply required to register to set up your account.

For an additional fee of $19.95, Taxbrain sends you a hard copy of the tax return. The company also keeps the return on file electronically for about 5 years, for additional fee of $9.95. You can have audit assistance as well for $34.95. The Taxbrain software service can help you finish your return and send it across in minimum of 15 minutes, while the average time is of 40 minutes.

Before finalizing or making any legal or tax related decisions, it is important that you consult tax accountant or a professional lawyer.
