TaxPoint Tax Preparation Software Review

TaxPoint is more suited for those with previous experience preparing tax returns. However, one good thing going for TaxPoint users is its support services which could really come in handy when maximizing credits or refunds. Not the best tax preparation software but is worth a look for those who know their way around the tax preparation process.
