TaxCut offers an electronic refund advance loan and imports data from many financial software applications.


TurboTax is one of the oldest companies offering tax software. Like most other software choices, you simply walk through an interview and answer questions.

The Basic version of the online product is $19.95 and the Premier version is $39.95. With each of these options, you pay an additional fee to efile your completed tax return. You can also choose to install tax preparation software on your own computer and efile or print and mail your return.
