In many cases, the schools offer short programs that allow you to meet state and local educational requirements to operate as a licensed professional.</p><p dir=”ltr”>When a trade school or a trade program isn’t accredited, you can’t take out <a href=”https://thecollegeinvestor.com/9892/the-complete-list-of-federal-student-loan-servicers/” class target=”_blank”>federal student loans</a> to finance your education. You may have covered your costs with private student loans, credit cards, or another type of financing. These alternative loan options aren’t typically covered by student loan forgiveness programs because they aren’t truly student loans.&nbsp;</p><h2 dir=”ltr” id=”t-1667848154134″ class>You Qualify If You Took Out A Federal Loan</h2><p dir=”ltr”>In general, student loan forgiveness is focused on federal loan forgiveness. That said, many trade schools, including most <a href=”https://thecollegeinvestor.com/40244/for-profit-college-student-loan-forgiveness-list/” class target=”_blank”>for-profit colleges</a>, are accredited. If you took out loans to attend a trade school, you probably took out some federal student loans to fund your education. That means you may qualify for one of the following trade school loan forgiveness programs.</p><h2 dir=”ltr” id=”t-1667848154135″ class>Biden’s $10,000 To $20,000 In Forgiveness</h2><p dir=”ltr”>If you took out federal loans, you may be eligible for up to $10,000-$20,000 in student loan forgiveness under <a href=”https://thecollegeinvestor.com/40628/president-bidens-student-loan-forgiveness/” class target=”_blank”>President Biden’s Loan Forgiveness Program</a>.&nbsp;</p><p dir=”ltr”><strong>The program is available for federal loan borrowers:</strong></p><ul class><li dir=”ltr”>Individuals who have an <a href=”https://thecollegeinvestor.com/32204/move-up-tax-bracket/#:~:text=Adjusted%20gross%20income%20is%20all,adjustments%20you’re%20entitled%20to.” class target=”_blank”>adjusted gross income</a> of <strong>less than $125,000</strong>&nbsp;</li><li dir=”ltr”>Married couples with a combined adjusted gross income of <strong>less than $250,000</strong></li></ul><p dir=”ltr”><strong>The program provides up to:</strong></p><ul class><li dir=”ltr”><strong>$20,000 to Pell Grant</strong> recipients who meet the income criteria&nbsp;</li><li dir=”ltr”><strong>$10,000 for all other borrowers</strong> who meet the income criteria</li></ul><p dir=”ltr”>If you took out federal loans to pay for trade school, you can fill out the One-Time Student Loan Forgiveness Application <a href=”http://studentaid.gov/debt-relief/” class target=”_blank”>here</a>.</p><h2 dir=”ltr” id=”t-1667848154136″ class>Closed School Discharge</h2><p dir=”ltr”>You may qualify for the <a href=”https://studentaid.gov/manage-loans/forgiveness-cancellation/closed-school” class target=”_blank”>Closed School Discharge</a> program if your school closed while you were enrolled. The Closed School Discharge is only available if you were unable to complete your education through some alternative means such as transferring credits or a “teach out” program at another school.</p><p dir=”ltr”>In August 2021, the <a href=”https://www.ed.gov/news/press-releases/extended-closed-school-discharge-will-provide-115k-borrowers-itt-technical-institute-more-11b-loan-forgiveness” class target=”_blank”>U.S. Department of Education discharged $1.1 billion</a> to 115,000 borrowers who attended the now-defunct ITT Technical Institute (ITT).</p><p dir=”ltr”>Visit the <a href=”https://studentaid.gov/announcements-events/closed-school” class target=”_blank”>Department of Education’s website</a> to learn more about this discharge program. It has a school-by-school guide, so you can understand the exact steps to take to proceed with a discharge if you’re eligible.</p><h2 dir=”ltr” id=”t-1667848154137″ class>Borrower Defense To Repayment Discharge</h2><p dir=”ltr”>The Borrower Defense to Repayment Discharge allows for federal student loans to be discharged due to a school’s harmful acts, misrepresentations, or omissions of facts. Students who borrowed money to attend a school that lied to them may be able to have their loans discharged.&nbsp;</p><p dir=”ltr”>If your school ever signed student loans on your behalf or misrepresented information about any of the following, you may qualify for <a href=”https://thecollegeinvestor.com/38412/get-help-defrauded-by-college/” class target=”_blank”>borrower defense to repayment discharge</a>.</p><ul class><li dir=”ltr”>Graduation rates</li><li dir=”ltr”>Employment rates</li><li dir=”ltr”>Earnings after graduation</li><li dir=”ltr”>Teacher qualifications</li><li dir=”ltr”>Ability to transfer</li><li dir=”ltr”>Other material matters&nbsp;</li></ul><p dir=”ltr”>Recently, a class-action lawsuit (Sweet v. Cordona) resulted in billions of dollars of automatic relief to approximately 200,000 borrowers. If you believe your school misled you or fraudulently influenced you to borrow money for school, fill out the <a href=”https://studentaid.gov/borrower-defense/” class target=”_blank”>Borrower Defense application</a>.</p><p dir=”ltr”>Applying for this discharge doesn’t mean your loans are automatically discharged, so continue paying for your loans while your case is considered.</p><h2 dir=”ltr” id=”t-1667848154138″ class>Discharge Of Student Loans In Bankruptcy</h2><p dir=”ltr”>What about private loan borrowers? If you struggle with your student loan payments, bankruptcy may be an option for you. Both Federal and private <a href=”https://www.consumerfinance.gov/about-us/blog/busting-myths-about-bankruptcy-and-private-student-loans/” class target=”_blank”>student loans can be discharged in bankruptcy</a>.&nbsp;</p><p dir=”ltr”>Some student loans require you to prove “undue hardship” during the bankruptcy proceedings. However, certain trade school loans are private debt that can be treated the same as credit card debt. If you attended trade school at an unaccredited school, your student loan could be fully discharged in bankruptcy proceedings.</p><h2 dir=”ltr” id=”t-1667848154139″ class>Other Loan Forgiveness Programs</h2><p dir=”ltr”>Trade school-specific loan programs are few and far between, but there are myriad loan forgiveness programs based on your state, your occupation, and other factors.&nbsp;</p><p dir=”ltr”>Check out these <a href=”https://thecollegeinvestor.com/student-loan-forgiveness-programs-by-state/” class target=”_blank”>state-based loan forgiveness programs</a> to see if you qualify for any of them. Some states will offer loan forgiveness programs for a variety of reasons, even simple things like buying a home. The programs can help cut down your payments while keeping your loans in good status, all of which can help you build or restore your credit.</p></div> Mon, 14 Nov 2022 08:15:00 +0000 Hannah Rounds

This tier only works for those with simple filing needs. Only users with W-2 income and unemployment income are supported in this tier. However, <strong>both state and federal taxes are free in this tier</strong>, which isn’t the case with some competitors ‘free’ versions.</p><p dir=”ltr”>However, this tier is extremely restrictive. The Child Tax Credit and the Earned Income Tax Credit aren’t available for free tier users. Filers who have <a href=”https://thecollegeinvestor.com/22222/best-hsa/” class>HSAs</a> or qualify for Dependent Care Credits will also have to pay for an upgrade to TaxSlayer Classic to complete their return.</p><p dir=”ltr”><strong>For Military Members: </strong>TaxSlayer has been consistently known to support military members. They offer a free Federal return for military members using TaxSlayer Classic – with all forms and tax situations included (state is additional).&nbsp;<strong><a href=”https://thecollegeinvestor.com/go/taxslayermilitary” rel=”nofollow” target=”_blank” class>Learn more about TaxSlayer Military here &gt;&gt;</a></strong></p></div><p><h2 class id=”t-1610298979225″>What’s New In 2023?</h2></p><div class=”thrv_wrapper thrv_text_element” readability=”47″><p dir=”ltr”>Over the past several years, TaxSlayer has made strides to become a premium tax filing software without the premium price tag.

It’s an especially great software for landlords and self-employed people who need calculators to figure out their net income for tax purposes. TaxSlayer is designed to help people identify and properly claim overlooked expenses and deductions. <a href=”https://thecollegeinvestor.com/34788/taxes-for-your-side-hustle/” class>Self-employed</a> business owners, side hustlers, and landlords can benefit from the TaxSlayer approach.</p><p dir=”ltr”>The big drawback is that you can’t directly connect to your bank account or employer to download your tax information. Instead, you must type it in manually or download and upload files with transaction information where supported.</p></div><p><h2 class id=”t-1641325580027″>TaxSlayer Features</h2></p><div class=”thrv_wrapper thrv_text_element” readability=”33″> <p>TaxSlayer provides premium tax filing software at discount prices. These are some of the notable advantages of using this robust software.</p></div><p><h3 class>Guided Navigation</h3></p><div class=”thrv_wrapper thrv_text_element” readability=”35.216560509554″> <p>TaxSlayer added new guided navigation through every section of its software. The experience is fine-tuned and improved for 2023, including support for new tax situations and recent tax law changes. Navigation updates bring TaxSlayer closer to the experiences offered by higher-cost <a href=”https://thecollegeinvestor.com/20778/turbotax-review/” target=”_blank” class>TurboTax</a>, <a href=”https://thecollegeinvestor.com/20777/hr-block-online-review/” target=”_blank” class>H&amp;R Block</a>, and <a href=”https://thecollegeinvestor.com/20831/taxact-online-review/” target=”_blank” class>TaxAct</a>.</p></div><p><h3 class>Specific Examples Of Legitimate Deductible Expenses</h3></p><div class=”thrv_wrapper thrv_text_element” readability=”40″> <p dir=”ltr”>TaxSlayer includes “How this works” articles highlighting legitimate deductible expenses. These articles make it far easier for people to understand the deductions they can take. Combined with other premium options (like “Ask a Pro”), filers can confidently decide whether they can take a credit or deduction.</p><p dir=”ltr”>While most companies have “knowledge articles” built into their software, TaxSlayer is remarkable for the quality and applicability of these articles.</p></div><p><h3 class>All Forms Supported At Classic Level</h3></p><div class=”thrv_wrapper thrv_text_element” readability=”35″> <p>TaxSlayer Classic supports all major schedules and forms. That means filers with self-employment or rental income can use the Classic option. For premium software, this is a real bargain. Others charge around 5x as much for the same tax filing abilities.</p></div><p><h3 class>Pro Support Included With Premium</h3></p><div class=”thrv_wrapper thrv_text_element” readability=”36″> <p>TaxSlayer Premium includes unlimited one-on-one guidance from a tax professional. This support can happen over the phone or via live chat. The total cost for Premium, including that support, is less than you would pay for software alone at top competitors.</p></div><p><h3 class>Audit Support</h3></p><div class=”thrv_wrapper thrv_text_element” readability=”37″><p>The Classic level of TaxSlayer includes IRS inquiry support for one year. TaxSlayer Premium includes IRS audit assistance from certified tax professionals for up to 3 years. Lastly, Self-Employed includes complete defense and legal representation from a tax pro in the case of an IRS audit for up to 3 years after the return is accepted. Again, this would be a pricey add-on with most competitors.</p></div><p><h2 class id=”t-1641325580028″>TaxSlayer Drawbacks</h2></p><div class=”thrv_wrapper thrv_text_element” readability=”33″> <p>While TaxSlayer offers an excellent product, it has a few drawbacks that should be pointed out.</p></div><div class=”thrv_wrapper thrv_text_element” readability=”45″> <h3 dir=”ltr” class>No Direct Financial Data Downloads</h3><p dir=”ltr”>You can upload a CSV of your stock transactions, but other banking and investing data must be entered manually. While that’s easy enough with a savings account or two, active stock investors and cryptocurrency traders may find this extremely cumbersome. The ability to upload CSV files was added in 2022, and hopefully, a future update will allow direct downloads of bank and investment account tax data.</p><h3 dir=”ltr” class>No PDF Uploads</h3><p dir=”ltr”>While it’s not universally supported, some competitors offer the ability to upload a PDF file of your bank or investment 1099 forms, and the software will figure out which numbers go where. That’s not an option at TaxSlayer.</p></div><p><h3 class>Simply Free Doesn’t Support Credits or Deductions</h3></p><div class=”thrv_wrapper thrv_text_element” readability=”37.641277641278″><p dir=”ltr”>TaxSlayer has a free pricing tier, but it’s only applicable to select filers. To qualify, you must:</p><ul class><li dir=”ltr”>Have less than $100,000 of income</li><li dir=”ltr”>No dependents</li><li dir=”ltr”>Only wage or salary income</li><li dir=”ltr”>Taxable interest up to $1,500</li><li dir=”ltr”>Unemployment income.</li></ul><p dir=”ltr”>This version doesn’t cover itemized deductions, credits, and other deductions. &nbsp;For example, filers who want to claim the Child Tax Credit or the <a href=”https://thecollegeinvestor.com/34603/earned-income-tax-credit/” class>Earned Income Tax Credit</a> must upgrade.</p></div><div class=”thrv_wrapper thrv_text_element” readability=”36″><h2 class id=”tab-con-9″>TaxSlayer Pricing And Plans</h2><p dir=”ltr”>TaxSlayer has a unique pricing strategy. Its “Classic” pricing supports all schedules and forms but doesn’t include Audit Support or advice from tax professionals. </p><p dir=”ltr”>The higher-priced options allow users to upgrade for those options – including self-employed which provides help specifically for those with small businesses.</p></div><div class=”thrv_wrapper thrv_table tcb-fixed” data-css=”tve-u-17e26eb45d4″><table data-rows=”6″ data-cols=”5″ class=”tve_table tcb-fixed tve_table_flat” data-css=”tve-u-1606be22017″><thead><tr class=”tve_table_row”><th class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone”></th><th class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone”><div class=”thrv_wrapper thrv_text_element tve_empty_dropzone” data-css=”tve-u-16eec3e574e”><p data-css=”tve-u-1606be22018″><strong>Free Edition</strong></p></div></th><th class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone”></th><th class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone”></th><th class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone”><div class=”thrv_wrapper thrv_text_element tve_empty_dropzone” data-css=”tve-u-16eec3e574e”><p data-css=”tve-u-1606be22018″><strong>Self-Employed</strong></p></div></th></tr></thead><tbody readability=”4.0681114551084″><tr class=”tve_table_row” readability=”9″><td class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone”></td><td class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone” readability=”4″><div class=”thrv_wrapper thrv_text_element tve_empty_dropzone” data-css=”tve-u-16eec3fb22c” readability=”32″><p>W-2 Income (No Earned Income Tax or Child Tax Credits)</p></div></td><td class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone” readability=”4″><div class=”thrv_wrapper thrv_text_element tve_empty_dropzone” data-css=”tve-u-16eec3fb22c” readability=”32″><p>All filers (No support from a pro)</p></div></td><td class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone” readability=”4.5″><div class=”thrv_wrapper thrv_text_element tve_empty_dropzone” data-css=”tve-u-17e25e0a533″ readability=”33″><p>Audit support, Advice from tax professionals.</p></div></td><td class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone” readability=”4″><div class=”thrv_wrapper thrv_text_element tve_empty_dropzone” data-css=”tve-u-16eec3fb22c” readability=”32″><p>Access to tax pros with self-employment expertise</p></div></td></tr><tr class=”tve_table_row”><td class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone”><div class=”thrv_wrapper thrv_text_element tve_empty_dropzone” data-css=”tve-u-16eec3fb22c”><p><strong>Federal Pricing</strong></p></div></td><td class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone”></td><td class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone”></td><td class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone”></td><td class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone”></td></tr><tr class=”tve_table_row”><td class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone”><div class=”thrv_wrapper thrv_text_element tve_empty_dropzone” data-css=”tve-u-16eec3fb22c”><p><strong>State Pricing</strong></p></div></td><td class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone”></td><td class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone”></td><td class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone”></td><td class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone”></td></tr><tr class=”tve_table_row”><td class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone” rowspan=”1″ colspan=”1″><div class=”thrv_wrapper thrv_text_element tve_empty_dropzone” data-css=”tve-u-16eec3fb22c”><p><strong>Total Cost</strong></p></div></td><td class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone” rowspan=”1″ colspan=”1″></td><td class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone” rowspan=”1″ colspan=”1″></td><td class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone” rowspan=”1″ colspan=”1″></td><td class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone” rowspan=”1″ colspan=”1″></td></tr><tr class=”tve_table_row”><td class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone” rowspan=”1″ colspan=”1″></td><td class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone” rowspan=”1″ colspan=”1″></td><td class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone” rowspan=”1″ colspan=”1″></td><td class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone” rowspan=”1″ colspan=”1″></td><td class=”tve_table_cell tve_empty_dropzone” rowspan=”1″ colspan=”1″></td></tr></tbody></table></div><div class=”thrv_wrapper thrv_text_element” readability=”34.326241134752″><h2 class id=”t-1610298979226″>How Does TaxSlayer Compare?</h2><p>TaxSlayer is an incredibly robust and easy-to-use software, but it doesn’t directly integrate with any brokerage accounts.

class=”thrv_wrapper thrv_text_element” readability=”42.454710144928″> <p dir=”ltr”>TaxSlayer employs industry-standard security. Logging in requires multi-factor authentication, and servers encrypt all data. But the company’s security policies haven’t always been this good. <a href=”https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/blog/2017/08/taxslayer-file-one-under-authentication”>In 2015</a>, TaxSlayer had a data breach in which 8,800 customers had their data stolen. This breach resulted in enhancements to security, including the requirement to use multi-factor authentication.</p><p dir=”ltr”>Most users can trust TaxSlayer to be safe and secure. But as with all online products, there are still minor risks when using online products for your finances.</p></div><p><h2 class id=”t-1641325580030″>How Do I Contact TaxSlayer Support?</h2></p><div class=”thrv_wrapper thrv_text_element” readability=”43.130434782609″><p dir=”ltr”>TaxSlayer has a variety of support options. The most robust support help comes for users on the Premium and Self-Employed tiers. However, any customer can use their support email form, live chat, or call their support phone number at 706-922-6741.</p><p dir=”ltr”>TaxSlayer has a solid customer service reputation online. The company is rated 4.3/5 on <a href=”https://www.trustpilot.com/review/taxslayer.com” target=”_blank” class>Trustpilot</a>, with about 19,000 customer reviews. Complaints focus on issues caused by mistakes during filing, indicating confusion during the filing process for some users.</p></div><p><h2 class id=”t-1641325580031″>Where To Buy</h2></p><div class=”thrv_wrapper thrv_text_element” readability=”29.734513274336″> <p>Unlike other software providers like <a href=”https://thecollegeinvestor.com/go/turbotaxes” class target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow”>TurboTax</a> or <a href=”https://thecollegeinvestor.com/go/HRBlock” class target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow”>H&amp;R Block</a>, TaxSlayer doesn’t offer a desktop version of its software. So the only way to buy TaxSlayer’s cloud-based software is to <a href=”https://thecollegeinvestor.com/go/taxslayer” class target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow”>visit its website</a> or download its mobile app.</p></div><p><h2 class id=”tab-con-6″>Is It Worth It?</h2></p><div class=”thrv_wrapper thrv_text_element” readability=”35.862704918033″> <p dir=”ltr”>TaxSlayer offers an ideal blend of ease of use, quality, and cost. It’s the ideal tax software for self-employed business owners, side hustlers, and landlords who want a useful and intuitive interface and don’t want to spend an arm and a leg on their taxes.</p><p dir=”ltr”>Anyone with simple filing situations may find that <a href=”https://thecollegeinvestor.com/go/creditkarmatax” class target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow”>Cash App Taxes</a> or <a href=”https://thecollegeinvestor.com/go/HRBlock” class target=”_blank” rel=”nofollow”>H&amp;R Block Free</a> make more sense.

However, you can’t download crypto data directly from exchanges like Coinbase.</p><p dir=”ltr”><strong>Can TaxSlayer help me with state filing in multiple states?</strong></p><p dir=”ltr”>Yes, TaxSlayer supports multi-state filing. But filers must pay $39.95 per state.</p><p dir=”ltr”><strong>Do I have to use the self-employed tier for my side hustle?</strong></p><p dir=”ltr”>Technically, filers can use the Classic tier for self-employment and side hustling. Filers who want pro support from self-employment experts can upgrade to the most expensive Self-Employed tier.</p><p dir=”ltr”><strong>Does TaxSlayer offer refund advance loans?</strong></p><p dir=”ltr”>In 2023, TaxSlayer is not advertising refund advance loans. It does have a relationship with Green Dot Bank and allows unbanked people to receive their funds on a TaxSlayer debit card issued through Green Dot. But this option does not entitle people to receive funds any earlier than normal.</p><p dir=”ltr”><strong>Does TaxSlayer offer any deals on refunds?</strong></p><p dir=”ltr”>TaxSlayer offers a “file and go” option where fees are deducted from a filer’s refund. However, this comes with an additional cost.</p><p dir=”ltr”><strong>Is TaxSlayer better than TurboTax?</strong></p><p dir=”ltr”>It depends. We found TaxSlayer to be better for price and pretty good for usability. TurboTax does offer one of the easiest-to-use interfaces, though, and it can make tax filing faster and simpler. However, TurboTax requires a much higher cost.</p><p dir=”ltr”><strong>What are the alternatives to TaxSlayer?</strong></p>TurboTax is the biggest competitor to TaxSlayer. You can also look at FreeTaxUSA, H&amp;R Block, and TaxAct.
