  • We're using Turbo Tax, the free version. We don't have any state income taxes, so I don't have to worry about paying for that one, and I always just click "no" when they ask if I want to buy something extra. I tried both programs and came up with the same amount (we owe), but I have found Turbo Tax easier to navigate.

  • turbo tax, just click no to all tehextra options, the only fee then will be for state if you have it there, and its like $25. Think what people pay to go to H&R block. LOL

  • My husband has used Turbo Tax since it first came out. We've never had any complaints with it at all.

  • We used H&R Block online, and it was free.

  • We used H&R Block and I accidentally ended up paying to file our taxes. They are pretty tricky with that. I managed to get through about ten clicks and then I messed up and it wouldn't let me go back. I should have just started over, but the option I clicked on was $14.95 and I was ready to get started with the taxes.

  • I actually did both this year to see what was the better program and deal. TaxAct got me a larger return and charged a LOT less fees!

  • My hubby uses, it is free for the federal and $10 for the state. We have used it for 6 years now and it is great! You should try it and see what you think. :)

  • I have used TaxSlayer for the past two years. We qualified for free federal AND state if we went through the IRS website and clicked the link from there.
