We use TaxAct. Was the least expensive service around, not sure if it still is it not. Been using them for 5 years and have been very satisfied.

Is this a legit website? It seems like a scamsite based on how poorly it was designed.

It's not free. The state makes up for it in the high taxes it charges. :p

I do my own taxes as well. Even owning a house it's not difficult.

Turbo Tax the past few years, moving to CPA this year due to new complexities. I know lots of people that use Tax Slayer and haven't heard any complaints about it for simple taxes though.

TurboTax has been great for me. I do our taxes, along with my mom, grandparents, and my in-laws. It's been great to work with.

I use TurboTax also. It's completely online/browser based and I think if what you file would normally fit on the 1040EZ form, it's free, otherwise they'll charge you something.

I use Turbotax. I switched to TaxACT one year, and had nothing but problems, including some bugs that they acknowledged. The slight savings wasn't worth the headache.

That said, my taxes are complicated. I filed in 4 state, own a house, had a rental property, had capital gains, have a home office, etc.

I went to H&R block last year, they wanted $400 to do my taxes because they were "complicated". I have a mortgage and small amount of investment income. The lady there did no better than turbo tax.

I rest my case. Now do your own freaking taxes guys. It's not rocket science.
