Unforntuately, you need to buy Turbotax each year.

True! A nice feature however, (I believe Taxcut does the same) is that the latest software recognizes the earlier version and can use that information, ie. personal info., charitable orgs., savings accounts, etc.

I did just discover a missing feature with turbo tax. "Soft Archive" I had expected previous years files could be accessed with the latest version. My former computer had tax years 1999, 2000 software and I only transferred copys of the tax files (fortunately PDF format as well) to my new computer. Apparently, I need the prior years executeable version of software to open that years tax file. Seems abit odd to not have soft archive ability? Possibly I'm missing something but have not found an explanation.
