The current Turbo Tax seems to have a flaw in it. I spent all afternoon doing Turbo Tax and almost finish the first run, when
at the end it tells you to update to latest version. When it was done I went
to continue and it won't read my backed up files. I go to help and they have
a idiotic page saying basically "Oh, yeah, it'll do that. Just uninstall
Turbo Tax and reinstall it and try again."

What a bunch of idiots!

And I was thinking there was a new tax on turbo chargers, not that I have one.

I used the free program from the IRS link that Sam posted. It worked great for me.

I have never used Turbo Tax, but in the past I used Kiplinger's Tax Cut and found it worked well. The past couple of years I've just been doing it the old fashioned way with pencil and paper, since I don't have many deductions.

I hate to admit this...I have an uncle who works at the IRS.
He told me you are 10 times MORE likely to be audited when you use Turbo Tax.

I'm returning that POS. It even somehow corrupted the files of the previous years I had on my floppy disc.

That worked well. I went on and selected H&R Block and it worked slick and was free.
