The format in which you’re asked questions makes them very easy to answer. They’re either yes-or-no style questions (“Are you married?” or “Head of household?”) or, when you have to fill in numerical amounts (say, for annual income or mortgage interest), there’s a moveable slider bar on which you can pick out an exact amount.
While the app does seem to work well, I will admit that TurboTax’s reputation is what made me feel most at ease using TaxCaster. I’ve used their software before, and found it to be helpful, accurate and effective. That being said, I also felt a little turned off by TaxCaster. Because this app is designed to show which of TurboTax’s programs you need, it seemed like a clever form of marketing. TaxCaster is helpful, but also feels a bit gimmicky.
