Except as provided above, this Software and any related services are provided "as-is", and to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Taxsoftware.com and its suppliers disclaim all other representations and warranties, express or implied, regarding the Software, disks, and related materials, including their fitness for a particular purpose, their quality, their merchantability, or their noninfringement. Taxsoftware.com does not warrant that the Software is free from bugs, errors, or other program limitations. The entire risk as to results and performance of the Software is assumed by you.

Additionally, while the Software and related services are designed to be effective tools for preparing 2000-2012 U.S. Federal Income Tax Returns, Taxsoftware.com and its Representatives cannot take responsibility for the results of your use of the Software. Tax laws and regulations change frequently and their application can vary widely based upon the specific facts and circumstances involved. Users are strongly encouraged to consult with their own professional tax advisor, accountant or tax lawyer concerning their specific tax circumstances before filing their tax returns. The ultimate responsibility for ascertaining and interpreting current tax law and completing and filing a correct tax return rests with you, not Taxsoftware.com. Taxsoftware.com disclaims any responsibility for the accuracy or adequacy of any positions taken by users in their tax returns.
