The Best Tool I Ever Bought for schedule D Calculations

This tax tool is very straightforward to use. It is very nice that the instructions for downloading trades from brokers' sites are included on the first screen of TXF Creator. No trouble in downloading trades from broker and generating .txf files. This tax tool is worth the money you pay and more.

A Useful and Inexpensive Tax Utility for Fidelity Gains!

TXF Creator is very simple to use and works flawlessly with my fidelity realized gains/losses. It saved me a lot of time preparing the schedule d portion in turbo tax.

This tax tool helps preparing schedule D inexpensively. It does save money and time (money too). Send email to their customer support support@txfexpress.com if you run into any difficulties. The responses are immediate, normally within a few hours.

Quick and Accurate

I chose competing software for Schedule D creation and it overstated my sales by a large amount. I then looked this up and used. The work took me 3-4 minutes, data was accurate, Schedule D data safely in my Turbo Tax. I had a billing question and the support was immediate and helpful!

Beats Paying Intuit $30 for a Premium Upgrade!

Cheap, Simple, and Easy to Use .TXF Application

This is a simple product that does what it's designed to do: organize your online brokerage transactions into an orderly format, ready to be imported into your tax software. Many online brokerage houses lets users download their yearly transactions, but only in .csv or .xls file format. This application takes the .csv or .xls format, then organize it and convert it into a .txf format... A file format recognizable by many tax preparation software. Making it easy to import the data and let the tax software do its job. Besides having excellent features, the low price of this application alone beats out several other more polished, yet more expensive softwares out there doing the same things. Highly recommended!

Best $12.99 Ever Spent

Worked perfect for my tax return! Exactly like the editor has mentioned. Very simple inteface, easy instructions to follow. I used generic csv in realized gain/loss format. Gave me exact number as reported by my broker.
