Hello,Thought I'd try little summertime check-in at fool.com while I'm doing the (one season late) "spring" cleaning of my finances...I must confess I'm one of those who has never used tax prep software, other than the little online forms for my state taxes that automatically sum things up...and I've made a mistake or two or three I'm sure (uncle Sam caught some when I paid too much, got to give the IRS credit for that) but I'm thinking it's time to seriously consider it.I need something that will work on linux...I'm using ubuntu linux but probably most things that run on linux would work..I've seen onilne references on linux forums to http://www.taxactonline.com/ which apparently just uses your browser, and to http://taxgeek.sourceforge.net/ which was updated in April 2008 and might be good enough, since what I have isn't that fancy, so I don't need the latest up to date (though would certainly prefer) but I've never heard of it, maybe there's a linux guru here who has and can recommend or not recommend it?Now, what do I need? Pretty basic, but must include being able to advice with not just Schedule D, but also with that pesky Schedule K-1 (form 1065) which is what's making me think it's time to try some software..I've done it by hand last two years, 2008 and 2009, despite my limited knowledge, and haven't been zapped yet...my earnings from investing in ITF, ITN linked to commodity prices, have been too small to matter, so far, I believe..Anyway, if the software can handle the schedule K-1 stuff (and of course Schedule D) that's good enough for me, it doesn't need to be super fancy, being able to do the above and being 'user friendly' are all I ask for...that and run on linux (free would be nice of course...will pay if recommended as worth it though)Your recommendations?Many thanks,edlbym
