I think they're all pretty user-friendly, Cheryl. I have some not-so-straight-forward stuff too, including S-Corps, etc.

With my TaxAct, I just had to plug in numbers. Painful, but not terribly difficult.

Yes, very much so. TT can import financial info directly from other institutions for 1095's and to complete your Schedule D, for instance. You need to use Turbo Tax Premier.

Thanks so much Taxy, Dawg, and RF. I'll have to look into it.

I just got my call about the dreaded income tax and now the faxing begins!

To paraphrase Charlotte Perkins Gilman

There's a whining at the threshold,
There's a scratching at the floor,
To work! To work! In Heaven's name!
The IRS is at the door!

I'm more or less recuperated from bringing the groceries from the door to the kitchen. That was the internet order I placed last night. I guess I better put stuff away. I did immediately put away milk, cream, bacon, and frozen corn.

As road fix said...

TurboTax Premier. Just tell them who your broker is and give them log in info and the software does the rest. I think I paid $69 at Costco. You can also go online.

Thank you so much Andy and RF for the tip on TT Premier. I'll definitely look into it - hopefully by next tax season I'll save a few bucks.

Not my problem.

Come every April, I am so glad that I am fully retired and on a fixed income. I don't receive enough income for the government to even know who I am. But my sympathies are with all of you who still have to file.

And right now I am watching Despicable Me II with Pirate. But not for long. I have to go downstairs and retrieve my drip pans from the kitchen stove in the Community Room. Saves me a lot of scrubbing. And tomorrow is Election Day and the voting is done for the public in our community room.

Finally got home from the ER, was having chest pains as I was driving to work. Have a heart monitor for the next two weeks. Now trying to relax and then to bed for a couple hours.
