ezTaxReturn started business in 2000 and is one of the most premiere online tax services in the industry. Their product is simple, intuitive, and very easy to use.
With ezTaxReturn, customers do all of their taxes online through the cloud-based system that stores taxes for up to three years. Not only that but the average preparation time for a state and federal return can be completed within 30 minutes. ezTaxReturn also offers a 100% accuracy guarantee as well as audit support. The company has a TRUSTe-certified seal on their website and features bank level encryption.
ezTaxReturn makes it easy to support most tax situations. Here of some of their forms:
There are limitations to some of the forms and schedules that they provide. For example, with the employee reimbursement form, if customers want to use the "actual costs" method to compute vehicle expenses, then they are going to have to use a different tax prep provider since they only support the standard mileage rate. As a rule of thumb, only assume that the "standard" means of deduction are going to work on ezTaxReturn if you want to use this platform.
ezTaxReturn updates their Facebook, blog, and Twitter on a regular basis. With some of the other tax prep services out there, there are "stale" social media accounts. With ezTaxReturn, there are a bunch of rich social media and blog information out there ranging from tax tips to tax deadlines for the upcoming year. ezTaxReturn is a transparent company. They state that they are TRUSTe-certified and Norton Secured. We also found out that they:
With ezTaxReturn, it is very easy to do everything within 30 minutes so that customers know if they have to pay or if they get a refund.
Another thing that really stood out was the ability to "hold onto your records." If customers need a tax return from a few years ago, they don't have to pay to get that tax return sent. Here are their storage capabilities:
There are also multiple ways to get a refund:
There are a lot of different things that their forms do not support. As mentioned above, one example is the employee reimbursement form. If a customer tries to calculate their self-employment, ezTaxReturn only supports Part I of the self-employment schedule. They cannot use Part II if they are trying to figure out the net earnings with an alternative method. Customers might want to start the process and see if their "limitations" are going to work for their tax situation.
ezTaxReturn does not provide a clear accuracy guarantee on their website, however, they do have a general guarantee. ezTaxReturn aims to provide customers with the highest tax refund possible and will reimburse the price one paid for their services if one finds a higher refund with another company. Not only that, but the company does not require a commitment to pay if a customer is not completely satisfied.
