CEDAR RAPIDS, IA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/20/13 -- TaxACT(R), the
value leader in tax preparation solutions, has signed an agreement
with GetInsured, a leading private health insurance exchange, to help
customers compare and apply for health insurance that fits their
needs and budget.
TaxACT and GetInsured are partnering on both education and enrollment
opportunities as they relate to TaxACT products and services.
Designed by health care and website experts, GetInsured helps
individuals and families compare and choose the right health
insurance plan at the best price. GetInsured's Estimator tool
estimates whether users qualify for tax credits to help pay for
insurance or for government-sponsored plans such as Medicare or CHIP.

of helping consumers navigate their tax and health insurance options
with greater confidence and ease," says TaxACT President JoAnn
Kintzel. "Like GetInsured, we focus on providing quality solutions at
an affordable price."
In September, TaxACT launched healthcareact.com with a free guide,
calculators and information about healthcare-related tax law changes.
TaxACT 2013 federal products were released in October and include all
the latest Affordable Care Act tax provisions. The program also
includes a personalized HealthWatch report on the potential impact
these provisions may have on a user's taxes and health care in 2014.
