“CompleteTax is committed to making sure that consumers have the highest-value choices they need to get their taxes done quickly, affordably and confidently – for our existing customers, as well as consumers new to doing taxes online and those switching from other online tax software programs,” said Gary Lundberg, Product Management Director for CompleteTax.
