Common Form partners with TaxAct for customers with complex taxes

January 21, 2015, San Diego, CA— Common Form Tax Software today announced a partnership with TaxAct, enabling Common Form customers with complex finances an easy way to file their taxes online. Common Form lets people with simple finances file their taxes in minutes from their phone or computer. Currently Common Form supports the 22 million tax payers who file a 1040EZ each year, with plans to expand to the 1040A and 1040 long form in the future. TaxAct covers all 1040 forms, so Common Form will refer 1040A and 1040 long form filers to a co-branded landing page, where these customers can quickly and easily file their taxes with TaxAct.

"We founded Common Form with a pledge to always have fair and transparent pricing," said Bill Hendricks, CEO and co-founder of Common Form. Mr. Hendricks continued, "TaxAct is the ideal partner for us to handle more complex tax returns while upholding that pledge. Their low price and focus on the customer mesh well with our values."
