TurboTax makes it as painless as possible, though, with very simple, easy to understand instructions that take you step-by-step through the process, checking for possible deductions as you go.
I use it, and what I like about it, beside the fact that it’s pretty idiot-proof (it would HAVE to be, for me to grasp it!), is that you can do it at your leisure… work on it, save your place, and come back to it later. You can go back and change things if you find a receipt before you’re finished. And it saves your information for next year, so you don’t have to re-enter your social, your address, your checking account number, etc.
Free efile is included in all of their products, and so is free live tax advice in case you really just want to run something by a live person.
TurboTax purchases also earn 7.5% cash back from QR! That helps to make the process a little less painful, too. 🙂
