Since 2012 software won't come out at all for a month or so and always has many updates along the way, does doing a test drive with 2011 software work very well ?

I'm in a very different position than this time last year and also will need to do an estimated tax payment at the beginning of Jan. It's also not a simple return(self-employed, investments, rentals, pension, etc).

Thanks

With the exception of the annual AMT fix 2012 law is set. And TaxAct is out with its 2012 preview edition.

If only.
Yes, the 2012 law is set as to the RATES.

But we still need Congress to act to know if a bunch of things that expired at 12/31/11 will be put back. Chief among these are the R&D Credit, and the #1 question I get is about the exclusion for qualified charitable contributions from IRAs.
Answer I usually give: Yes, we think probably, but it's not back YET.

I also don't know where you got the 23.8% rate

If the Bush-Obama tax cuts expire, the cap gains rate will go to 20%. And doesn't ObamaCare slap an extra 3.8% tax on cap gains for evil rich people with incomes over $200k single, $250k MFJ?

I'd give exactly the opposite answer. Seems to me they hashed all that out at the end of 2010 and made a conscious decision about what would go through 2011 and what would go through 2012.

We shall see.
