It really comes down to a trade-off on comfort level vs cost. Perhaps, in a year or two, when the cost of efiling on both Federal and State is in the $15-range, I might consider doing so.

I wish I kept records of the cost to e-file using TurboTax. Once, I think it cost $7.95 to e-file the federal return and the could not e-file a New Jersey return.
Later, You could file both returns for a single fee that, IIRC, was less than $10.
Then I bought TurboTax with State included at no extra cost and they allowed you to file one return "free"; i.e., the filing cost was included.
This year they wanted something like $35 for filing both federal and state. With cheaper faster computers and more experience with e-filing, I would have expected the costs to go down, not up, and surely not up so much. How much oil does it take to run their computers anyway?
