“I have used [another tax software] for years, and I was almost finished with filing and I saw that they had an additional $40 in a hidden fee at the end . . . I switched [to Ramsey SmartTax] and it was so easy . . . I’m grateful for this product and that I didn’t have to click through 10+ advertisements to get through the filing process!”

1 Here’s how savings of up to 70% works: Let’s say you have investments or self-employed income/expenses to claim and you want to file your federal tax return online. These types of filings are included with Ramsey SmartTax Federal Classic—while you’d need the Premium version of TurboTax® for those filings. If you crunch the numbers using the highest list prices for those two products during the 2024 tax filing season, you’ll get the estimated savings. We do our best to stay on top of the highest list prices, features and savings, but there’s always a chance details may not be exact as of today’s date. We recommend you do your own research to choose the best product for your situation. Ramsey isn’t affiliated with TurboTax.

  • Low-Up Front Pricing

  • Maximized Savings

    If you’re like most people who switch from the leading competitor, you’ll save anywhere from $60 to $120 to file your federal return online.

Ninety-eight percent of Ramsey SmartTax users plan on filing with us the next year. That’s just how easy it is! Plus, you can file your taxes for a fraction of the cost of the other guys and not get suckered into loans and credit cards you don’t need. Why’s that a big deal? In a nutshell: The other guys make a profit when you take on debt. That’s not how we do things at Ramsey. #debtfree

You bet! The guided online process walks you right through it—and you can choose how little or how much guidance you want. You can even save time and fast-fill some of your info by starting with last year’s tax return. When you log in to Ramsey SmartTax to start your return, simply import a pdf when prompted. Using the pdf of your return from another tax prep site, Ramsey SmartTax can pull in your name, address, Social Security number, occupation and filing status.

You’ve got support for that! With Ramsey SmartTax Federal Classic, you’ll get help with IRS inquiries for up to one year after your return is accepted. With Ramsey SmartTax Federal Premium, we’ll work with you to prepare for and resolve inquiries for up to three years after your return is accepted.

Ramsey SmartTax is powered by TaxSlayer, who’s been trusted in the tax industry for over 50 years. That means the software is always up-to-date and accurate. Your info is kept safe. And if you’ve paid Uncle Sam too much, Ramsey SmartTax can help you get your refund.

Ramsey says two things about taxes: You need to do them (duh), and you need to adjust your paycheck withholding so you end up as close to $0 for a tax return as possible. That way, you keep the money you need in your monthly budget—and stop giving Uncle Sam an interest-free loan.
