  • I used to use taxact, and yes it's free. At the end it will ask for 14.95 to do your state. No need. You can do it for free on your state government page.

  • Turbo tax screwed a few people this year by not transmitting the account numbers for their direct deposits...and it does cost for state! But they have a pretty good program! Taxact is free!
