What are your thoughts on tax programs. I want to itemize because of work expenses and education. What the best out there?

Have used TurboTax for the past five years...simple and reliable, it walks you right thru from start to finish, to e-file.

I've used the both the home version, and the business version. They both will walk you through all the worksheets needed for any itemizing you need to do; if you use Quickbooks or Quicken (can't remember which one it's called) it will import your itemized tax deductible entries straight from the other program's files. If all you're doing is simple itemization (yeah, I know, oxymoron when talking taxes) and don't have a business, you don't need the professional version (I purchased it once by mistake on a download, cost me about 40 bucks extra).

I've been electronically filing using TaxCut since 1995. Used to be Kiplinger, and now it's H & R Block.

Never a problem. Filed extra early this year, about a month ago now. Got my return direct deposit over a week ago.

I use this one also, I did use Turbo Tax for a few years and it is an easy program to use, I just got tired of jumping through all the hoops to get my Rebates for the program and the rebates on the e-file charge. Taxact it's all upfront and included so no sending in stuff to get your money back.

Used taxact this year. Thanks for the info.
Itemizing is a ***** . You have to have over 5100$ in itemized stuff.

For others who itemize. How do you reach that number? I had to file without it.

I used Turbo Tax last year, thought I was gonna have a problem cause I did contract labor this year, and had many different jobs, plus deductions. I just went to the website, and started with he free version, within minutes it upgraded me to the version I needed.

For about 2 years before I used Turbo Tax I went online and just used it to figure what I was gonna get back, than I would go to the Tax Place (H&R Block etc.) It took me sometime to figure out I was paying a preparer too much.

I think you can go online with each one and figure out what you like, and what will work for you without paying.
