Been using TurboTax since it came in a box with about 10 small floppy discs (I think our OS was V3.11 back then?)! We've been happy with the results so far. Costco puts it on sale every year to make it convenient for everyone. Lately federal eFile is free, and state eFile (Calif) still costs something, but I choose to mail my returns in; if I have to go to the trouble of filling out the forms then some flunky at the other end is going to have to go to the trouble of opening an envelope and reading the forms...

Also, since we have to send a substantial check with our returns, I also send them certified (or whatever it is called) with a return receipt. Arrival at the IRS is delayed a day or so, and there is another small delay as the signature cards are robo signed or whatever they do. The check is cashed several days later than if the returns are just sent regular mail.

Silly, I know, but I get a perverse satisfaction keeping the money in our account a few days longer.

OK, but that introduces one more opportunity for human error if said "flunky" has to keystroke the data into his/her computer terminal. Since we generally get a refund (we generally wind up overpaying our quarterly estimated taxes slightly if we sell any securities), e-file works fine for us.

How many folks know that AARP will do you taxes for free? There are volunteer centers all over. They use a very nice software.

I don't trust AARP any further than I can spit up wind in a stiff breeze.

I was talking to a neighbor a little while ago and she said that one can download fillable PDF Federal tax forms (I already knew you could do that with State forms) and you can e-file both Federal and State (AZ, btw) without using tax software. I'll be looking into that next year.

Turbo Tax must be great as it saved our Secretary of the Treasure about $27,000.
