Three editions were installed this year on my system.

2021 Federal 1040 Editions

2021 All States Editions

2021 Federal 1120S Editions

This is my first tax season 100% Linux with no Windows dual boot. I am running Mint 20.3 with the Cinnamon Desktop. I was able to install, open and run Tax Act for the most part in WINE. However, some of the drop-down menus did not populate correctly so I was unable to finish the return and fully process an e-file in WINE. If there is a dev willing to work on this I am willing to playtest and report on my system.

What works

I was able to prepare and e-file several returns

What does not

1) From time to time the program had difficulty loading a screen and would go black.

2) The program would not read through to my printer.


1) I had to hit refresh or minimize the screen to force a reload of information. Otherwise, everything functioned well and the display problem may be related to my GPU.

2) I had to export/print to pdf then go back later and pull my pdf files to print through my reader.
