Agree with Amy's comments copied below.
IF you have an account with Vanguard or Fidelity or just need to file a 1040EZ form IT CAN BE FREE !!!
Check it out with Vanguard, Fidelity, possibly others and Quicken.com.
The NICEST thing is doing the STATE taxes with effectively 'one-click', and then transmitted them all electronically and being done.
(Downloading, saving and printing a PDF file of the actual return is a good thing to do too)
Give it a try.
This is a blatant plug for TurboTax online. (I do not work for Intuit, nor am I an Intuit shareholder. ;))
I've always done our taxes. I hate it, but I'm used to it. This past weekend, I decided to bite the bullet and get started on my 1999 return. I thought I'd try TurboTax, as I had heard it mentioned here and there.
Fools, I have to sincerely say that this year, doing my taxes was at least ten times easier than ever before. The entire process went smoothly and took literally 1/10 of the time it has taken me in past years.
I am finished, and I had to do *no* math, *no* figuring out which forms to use, *no* reading directions, *no* photocopying; I just sat there like a moron and answered the questions that popped up on the screen while the software did all the work.
I didn't even have to go to the fricking store to buy the software. I just went to the Intuit site and got started. Gave them my credit card number right before they filed electronically for me.
This is a wonderful, beautiful thing.
If only someone had told me how ridiculously easy this was in prior years, I could have saved myself a tremendous amount of angst and self-flagellation.
Just wanted to share this with my fellow Fools in the hopes that it might save one of you some hair-pulling *this* tax season.
