    You file both w-2 forms on the same tax return.

    I have used both turbo tax and tax act. I prefer turbo tax. I find it easier to use because of the way it asks questions and has little links to explain what each thing is if you aren’t sure about it. When I used tax act, I felt like it wasn’t as easy to use because the year I used it, it didn’t guide me through the process the way turbo tax does. I felt like I had to know more to use tax act. (I had to know which links to click to enter the forms I needed filled out.) I haven’t used tax act in a few years, so it may be better now. I will continue to use turbo tax.

    I am adding an edit because I just seen the previous answer. I have never felt like turbo tax shorted my refund. It has always seemed like the right amount for my situation. Turbo tax will let you start the return for free and you don’t pay unless you actually file the return from their site. I think tax act is the same way, so you could enter your information on both sites and see the difference, if any. Then file the tax return from the site you like and delete the information from the site you didn’t like.
