See why our clients choose ExpressTaxExempt!
This was my first time using the software and I really like it! I had already prepared the Form 990, but needed a platform to file it electronically. You made it easy to replicate the return with its new features.
This is the second year I have used the software and it was easier to use than last year. Also the use of indicators where it was necessary to use schedules was helpful. The third year will probably be easier.
Very good experience for transmitting to the IRS. I appreciated having to fill in only relevant numerical slots, and also the ease of making corrections and moving between pages. The audit function was very helpful, too.
Your site was very helpful and clear, and I appreciated the pop up notes to fix problems. I am so happy to be able to file the Form 990 electronically through your company! I will definitely use this every year going forward.
