This AI has ingested US tax law
Base algorithm is OpenAi’s GPT-4, but it has also ingested all US federal and state tax legislation changes since 2021. Still, it’s obviously not tax advice.

Can an AI really help you with your taxes?
That’s what we want to know! Taxes are complicated. Here at Keeper, a smart tax filing app for freelancers, we’re on a mission to make them simpler.
AI could be a powerful tool for democratizing tax knowledge and lightening tax pros' workloads. But will a robot accountant know what to do with real-life tax situations brought up by taxpayers like you — everything from write-offs for your unique small business to who’s a dependent in your one-of-a-kind family? Let’s find out together.
How should I use this tool?
We trained GPT-4 on the latest tax updates for 2023. Help us test how good it is as an accountant by asking it your tax questions. Please don't send sensitive personal information through the tool.
When will I get an answer?
You’ll see the AI accountant’s answer right away (or… in about 10-60 seconds). It’ll show up right under the window where you typed it in.
Once we've had a chance to make sure your question is appropriate, we'll also publish it — alongside the AI accountant's response.
Will the answers be fact-checked?
Yes. A (human!) CPA, EA, or JD will review all responses. (Read about one CPA's experience fact-checking AI responses here!)
We’ll incorporate their feedback — if they had any — into the version of the answer published above.
How do I know which answers have been fact-checked?
When you’re browsing past questions, a symbol next to the answer means a tax professional has already reviewed it. A green checkmark means the AI got it right, while a red "stop" icon means it got it wrong. You'll also see the tax pro's comments on the individual question's page.

Can I ask a question in another language?
Yes! Our AI accountant is able to read and respond to questions in any natural language. But keep in mind that our fact-checkers can only review responses given in a handful of languages, including English and Spanish.
Will you publish every question that’s asked here?
We won’t publish questions that are off-topic or inappropriate, either in content or in phrasing. (Even if our AI accountant doesn’t have feelings, our fact-checkers definitely do!)
If you ask several similar questions in succession, we may choose one to publish.
Why am I getting an error message?
If you're seeing an error message, it means too many people are asking questions. Try again after a few minutes!
What if I have a question about the Keeper app?
Our AI accountant hasn’t been trained to offer tech support (yet!). So if you need help with something in the Keeper app, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
That’ll give you the fastest response time (usually within one business day)!
What if I want to know how much I’ll owe in taxes?
You don’t need an AI accountant for that! We have some free calculators that can help you.
If you want a sense of how much you’ll pay in taxes — or how much you’ll get back as a refund — check out our income tax calculator.
If you want to estimate your tax bill from freelancing, use our 1099 tax calculator. Meanwhile, our self-employment tax rate calculator will tell you what percentage of your 1099 income you should set aside for taxes (and give you some tips for budgeting them out).
Finally, if you think you should be paying quarterly taxes, use our quarterly tax calculator to figure out how much your payments should be (or if you should even make them).
