our pricing

Pay less. Earn more.

Tax industry pricing doesn't have to be as complicated as it is today. CIT is changing that. You shouldn't have to buy tax software and then charge your clients a bunch of junk fees for a bank product.  The software should be free and you should keep the fees you charge which gives you the flexibility to give your clients a great deal.  So, we created our revolutionary pricing model.

With cost-effective tax software and banking products, the savings add up—and put you in control over your pricing, not your service bureau.

CLIENT QUERIES

Frequently Asked Questions

Why do tax pros use CIT?
Community Income Tax helps you be competitive against “free” software and large tax firms by offering a flat $15/return pricing. You can choose to pass on the savings to your customers, boosting customer satisfaction and referrals, or increase your profits. You’re in control of your costs, not a bank or software company!
Is Community Income Tax too good to be true?
Of course not! Over the past 8 tax seasons, CIT has served thousands of tax advisors, helping them earn more while charging their customers less—and growing their businesses. Best of all, we’ve stayed committed to customer service and support without raising our fees once!
How much do I pay for CIT -and when?
You don’t pay a dime until you use Community Income Tax and, from there, it’s always (and only!) $15 per accepted return, all tax season long. There are never upfront or out-of-pocket costs!
How much do I pay for CIT software each year?
Nada, zip, zilch! Your TaxWise software is absolutely free—and that’s for desktop or mobile, with unlimited users. Plus, you’ll get unlimited, year-round access to TaxWise’s premium support.
