Explorer, and is not supported on other browsers. Returns are

It requires a high speed connection to the internet and can be
accessible from any PC which meet the requirements. It cannot be
used without an internet connection.
TaxWise Training is not provided at the IRS
In order for training to be
effective, you must have basic computer competency and knowledge of tax
law. Basic computer competency means knowing how to start the
computer, bring up windows, familiarity with Windows XP or Windows VISTA,
the ability to log in to Windows, and knowing how to use the mouse
and/or the touch pad, PDF for reading documents, and sending documents
to be printed. The training is in how to use the software to prepare
returns, and does not teach tax law.
Without basic computer competency and tax law knowledge, you will not
gain much from the class, and slow down the other students.
