Another reminder that I'm a dinosaur.

This morning, I went through the process of refinancing my first mortgage. I was asked to bring copies of two years of tax returns, along with all sorts of other documentation. Here's what the loan officer said when he saw the tax returns:

"Wow, I haven't seen any handwritten tax returns in a really long time!"

The last time I considered tax software, I freaked out when the instructions said to start out with backing up my system.

Don't know if I'll join the 20th (not a typo) century, but what software do folks prefer, and why?
