Since IRS won't send me forms, I decided to try their "Free Fillable Forms" and efile for the first time. Had trouble getting into the website early yesterday. Too many people trying to access it, I presume. Once in, it went pretty smoothly. I did note Schedule A won't be available until mid February, but this year I won't be itemizing so no problem. I had trouble with the Residential Energy Credit form but only because I'd never done one before. It would have been faster to have an instruction booklet to thumb through than trying to find things online but otherwise everything was easy. I'm ready to submit my return except I don't have a 1099 from my bank. I have my Quicken data I entered throughout the year, and I checked my bank's online history and they matched. May not bother waiting for the document to arrive.Also did my state return electronically. Not quite as easy as the federal but it's done. Glad both federal and state provide a way to efile without paying an accountant or buying costly software.
