Security of your personal information

StudioTax is the most secure option to prepare and file your return. StudioTax is a Windows/Mac installable program and NOT an online application. Unlike online applications where you have to trust a private third party for the security of your valuable personal information, StudioTax gives you full control over your security. StudioTax installs on your computer's local hard drive, saves your returns on your computer's local hard drive, and absolutely NO information, personal or otherwise, leaves your computer.

More about StudioTax

StudioTax Business Model

Our business model is similar to that of a street performer. You can use and enjoy our software and later decide if the experience was worth it and you can afford a donation.
However, based on many users’ feedback, you should be wary of recent free offerings from big commercial organizations. To use our previous analogy, they are big circuses that send their clowns out to the street to attract unsuspecting customers to their tents and pressure them in paying for their overpriced shows.
