We use Turbo Tax. The first year we had to buy the add-on for State (but they had a deal on it at Best Buy if you bought both). I joined their online panel (they just ask you a few questions every year) and they now include the State and a couple other things with mine (and they sent me a T-Shirt). I had them automatically renew mine so they sent it to me automatically this year.

P.S. When I say "we" use Turbo Tax, I mean me. I love doing that kind of thing and James doesn't, so I do it.

My boyfriends dad does our taxes with turbo tax. It's fast, easy, I don't have to pay and the refund comes rather quickly. I love it!

does anyone else live in a different state from whee you work?

turbo tax makes the federal 1040 very easy, even when itemizing, and a state download from the state in which your job resides makes that pretty easy as well.

but i live in a different state from my job. i've found turbo tax doesn't handle dual states well. you have to calculate your home state tax based on credit given to other jurisdictions, but not all items are allowable deductions or exclusions, or even considered income (such as some benefits, pension, or company paid life insurance) in both states.

denial ain't just a river in egypt, ya know.

I'm filing my taxes this weekend using Turbo Tax. I think this is my 10th year using TT Premier. Good stuff and makes taxing filing fun. :LOL:

I use TT myself, but unfortunately, I have to use another program when I volunteer at the Senior Center. It is an arrangement with the IRS and AARP to volunteer to prepare taxes for seniors and low income people.

I have to figure out what is needed to file this year since Shrek is not able to sign the paperwork. Any ideas/advice from you tax filing fiends out there? (that is not a spelling error...I hate doing taxes)

My ex-BIL is a CPA, and has done my taxes for the last 20+ years.

I used to do my own before I purchased a condominium. I got somewhat confused, so I went to H&R Block. Wow, what a mistake that was. They hire wet behind the ear CPA's or worse. I was assured that I qualified for the Obama stimulus package. They charged me $400 and when I went to collect the stimulus package money, I was told I missed the cutoff amount. Thanks for nothing H&R Block.
