    Tax act.com Works very good. It has a free version if you want to mail it in or for bout 12-13 $ you get the e-file. been using it bout 5 years, good results and covers everything, even had stuff for RRRt(rail road) and also did well for amortization and depreciation on rental property. Pretty streight forward, and cheaper than that other outfit.

    TAXACT and TURBOTAX seem to be the two biggest although there are others. You can enter the same info in both and see which comes up with the best numbers for you. No charge for a federal return but there is a charge for state returns. You can e-file or print out the return to send it yourself. I would e-file if you have money comming back and send it yourself if you have to pay.

    Some of the online ones have limits on whether you can use them or not.

    Am I wrong or is TurboTax getting kind of pricey?

    If you can understand those forms you are a demented genius.
