The TaxSlayer Difference

TaxSlayer Difference

Ever wonder what sets TaxSlayer apart from the competition?

1. Price 

Most TaxSlayer products cost less—period. 

Although the products we sell are similar to those of our competitors, some TaxSlayer products cost up to half of theirs. That’s a huge savings. 

Example: Compare our most popular product, Classic, to the equivalent product of our competitors. Our price is significantly lower, despite similar features and levels of support.  

2. Value 

TaxSlayer customers get more for each hard-earned buck.  

Example: With Self-Employed, our most comprehensive package, customers get the full range of support, including priority/VIP, front-of-the-line customer service via chat, phone, and e-mail. On top of that, they can get quick answers to their toughest tax questions using “Ask a Tax Pro.” Self-Employed also comes with Audit Assistance for customers who prefer that extra layer of security and support. 

3. Customer Service/Support 

If you get stuck, we’ll give you a hand. You’re not alone. 

Example: Our customer service representatives are here to answer questions about your account whether you call or email, even if you choose Simply Free to prepare and e-file your tax return.  

The TaxSlayer Difference 

We’re proud to offer active duty military and retirees a FREE federal e-file using Classic and just $15 for a state return. Or, they can choose to upgrade to Premium or Self-Employed by paying the difference ($18 for Premium and $23 for Self-Employed). And don’t forget about our Simply Free edition, which is open to anyone e-filing a federal form 1040EZ with 1 state included. 

While it’s true military members and retirees have the option to file elsewhere for free—both simple and complex tax returns—the TaxSlayer difference is the reason military members return to TaxSlayer year after year to e-file their tax return.  

Why TaxSlayer? 

We don’t sell your information.

We price our products based on the level of customer support you choose—not on the number of federal forms and schedules you need to prepare and e-file your return. 

Like our competitors, we guarantee a maximum refund and 100% accuracy, but here’s the difference: 92% of all TaxSlayer customers receive a refund, and TaxSlayer was highest recommended for maximum refund.*  

If you’re still not convinced… 

A recent survey indicated TaxSlayer was highest rated for ease of use, speed of filing, best value, and most trusted.*
