To import your prior year return, you must either have a PDF copy of a return available or have filed your return the previous year with TaxAct. To capture your W-2 with a camera with your phone, you must be able to download and install TaxAct's mobile app and grant it the necessary camera and image privileges. To ensure accuracy, we will ask you to review any information we're able to import (either through PDF import, prior year import, or W-2 photo capture) and review it for accuracy. These quick start options save time by not requiring you to enter some of your information manually.
