Again, I'm thinking I might try it this year. Do I need the software or what?

Anybody think they can point me in the right direction?

Thanks.

El-turbotax-o. Of course, we only have the standard deduction...

Mrs. Tuttle does ours. But she does have a BBA.

Turbotax.

Which country are you filing in?

US, Canada or your Swiss holdings?

We do TurboTax. I switched from the boxed software version to the online version last year and am happy with the experience. I've been a TurboTax guy for at least 6 years and really can't complain. It makes taxes straightforward enough that I actually don't mind doing them -- and we have to do the home and business version since my wife has her own business.

Cool. Thank you very much.

I'll look at online Turbotax and see if this simpleton can figure it out. Hopefully, my Swiss holdings and that Caribbean island I picked up on a short sale won't complicate things too much.

I have a friend that lets me and all of their friends use their ultimate version of TurboTax.

My wife is a CGA so we do our own... Although the Turbo Tax makes it pretty easy

The good thing about the online version is you don't have to pay until you want to file.
