Refund estimate was wayyy off. First it showed a really high number I knew couldn't be right, but hoped. Then when I went back in, it was lowered. I thought, ok. not bad! went and filed and it was still off 2k. disappointing. Normally its pretty accurate. I will Re-Rate next year at tax time. Edit for 2020 taxes. Estimate was exact. To the dollar.

The app said we would get over 10k back in taxes. I entered the exact same info on their turbo tax service and now it says we only get $500 back!!! Not sure where the discrepancy is, as I have double checked the entries in both systems. My best guess is that they are trying to get it to look like you'll get a big return so you start to file with their paid service, then find out that it's not so rosy, but you've already entered all the info so you don't want to go somewhere else to do it again. Very frustrated with their setup/software. We don't have a complicated tax situation, just 2 w-2s, single family home mortgage, and child care expenses. Don't trust their numbers. You'll likely be disappointed.

Marginal tax rate calculation was incorrect, TaxCaster quickly fixed the issue
UPDATE: Marginal tax rate calculation was incorrect, but TaxCaster quickly fixed the issue. Calculations are now spot on. Thanks for the quick response. Initial review: The TaxCaster apps 2020 marginal tax rate calculation (tiered calculation) is incorrect over $163,300 when adding IRA/pension distributions that bring total income over $163,300. (from a marginal tax rate of 24% to 32%). It should calculate the amount over $163,300 at 32% + $33,271.50

Problem with higher bracket
I've used this for years. This year, it seems to be screwed up at the higher brackets. 32%......somehow it is calculating my effective rate to be 30%....a bit of an oops. Should be more in the low 20s.....you gave me a heart attack....

Watch out for deductible IRA phaseout
Very helpful app, but the developers forget to update the salary ranges for IRA phaseout for the new tax year. I mention it and they fix it each year, but it never ends up in the process for updating the next year.

2020 version at this date does not show correct standard deductions based on age 65 and other years. Also, shows incorrect tax due for taxable income (online version also misses this). I hope they fix these.

It doesn’t work
Other apps tell me I need to pay $1000 in taxes. This one over $18k.

Latest update is non functional
I'm using an iPhone SE 2020, the latest update doesn't even open. Previously the app was great.
