Below, you’ll find information to help you compare BoomTax and ACA XML, including features and pricing.

We also provide integrated tools such as automatic XML file and data validations that are seamlessly included in the filing process to make sure the data you send to the IRS is accurate and ready to file.

ACA XML requires you to register with E-services and go through the tedious application process of applying for your own TCC and Software ID.

As an Authorized IRS E-file Provider, we have done all the hard work for you so there is no need to apply for your own TCC number or Software ID. This means there is no need to contact the IRS to complete your filing as we file on your behalf. You also won’t need to complete the rigorous testing that is required every year to keep your filing privileges.

Boomtax also provides free TIN checking (a service that almost every filer will need) to help with IRS corrections. Our process is totally hands off and is typically completed in less than a day!

 2) BoomTax is more affordable.

Whether you are a small business or a large corporation, we have a solution for you. We offer a flat rate price for our services that includes everything you’ll need to file.

The option to e-file using ACA XML software is an additional cost.  Their standard price simply helps create your XML file to transmit to the IRS.

Our Enterprise customers also have access to our Web API and White Labeling options.  Our Web API allows you to integrate ACA filing logic directly into back-end accounting systems.  This can also help automate corrections and keep employee data up-to-date.  White Label capabilities allow customers who handle different accounts to customize our product with their company logo so their customers do not need to know they are using a third-party service to file on their behalf.
