Welcome to iCalculators New Forums.

What is iCalculator?

iCalculator is a collection of free Calculators, applications and tools developed for our community. this includes tax return tools, finance apps, human resource attendance applications and more.

iCalculator is an ongoing project which delivers tools and applications based on the feedback from our community. In simple terms, we develop our apps around your requirements and feedback. A good example is the US Tax Calculator which initially was a simple tax return estimator, this has grown into a robust tool that includes (planned for qtr 4 2015) itemized deduction returns, tracking of receipts (upload and save) and tax breakdown and analysis.

Our new forums go live in 2015. Unfortunately our previous forums which used the vBulletin application were so heavily spammed and abused that we had to abandon them and start from scratch. Sadly this means we lost a lot of valuable feedback, finance articles and other key content... such is life. This regrettable hacker intervention did however provide us opportunity to review the site infrastructure and how we deliver our applications to support your intuitive use.

Out total holistic review culminated in the delivery of a bespoke members area where you can access and control all your settings, applications and information that supports your use of iCalculator. You can save salary calculations, prepare budgets and more. We will be continuously delivering new applications throughout 2016.

What we want from you!

We can't maintain and sustain iCalculator without your support. We don't want money or donations, advertising covers our server costs. What we need is your feedback and engagement:

  1. IF you have a feature request, tell us. Join our forums, post your idea concept and, when we review and integrate, you will get a message confirming the upgrade has occurred.
  2. IF you see a bug, error or incorrect assumption / calculation, tell us. We maintain thousands of calculators and applications. Whilst we aim for 100% accuracy and sustained updates we are a small team. iCalculator is a community project, we deliver but we need your support and engagement to ensure we deliver the right tools, the right way.
  3. Get involved. If you see a question or feedback from another community member and you have an opinion, share it. We love to get feedback (good and bad), without feedback we can't fine tune our tools to meet your expectations and needs
