What works

Was able to load an existing tax return completed under Windows. Upon cursory examination, loading was successful and all of the values seem to be correct.

TaxAct puts out updates frequently throughout tax season and even after filing deadline. Was able to update both federal and California versions of the program.

Since this is a tax return, I'm not sure I'd file a return created under Wine. To be cautious, I would still prepare and file the return under Windows. So far the program seems to be functional.

What does not

The text-entry fields are a little scrunched. Field labels are broken into two lines where they shouldn't be.

Workarounds

The native Windows version had trouble importing 1099-B data from TD Ameritrade. Not sure if the problem is with TD Ameritrade or TaxAct. The workaround in Windows was to download a csv file and import it. Did not test this under Wine.

What was not tested

Did not test importing of previous year's data such as taxpayer info or carryovers.

Did not test printing of forms, either to printer or to pdf file.

Did not test e-filing.

Did not test importing of 1099-B data from brokerage.

Additional Comments

Needs further testing to determine whether all functions work when starting a new tax return rather than opening an existing one.
