PC Pro review of TaxCalc 2009 Personal 6 - March 2009 issue
Verdict: Few new features, but a solid, inexpensive program that remains the best tax return software for individuals.
The Inland Revenue's push towards online tax filing has spawned a clutch of third-party tax return tools and Acorah Software's TaxCalc Personal is our current favourite, allowing you to submit up to six tax returns.
