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.
