In the past I e filed my federal and state returns using H&R block and paid around $30 for the software and loved it. This year I used TurboTax which I got for free through Fidelity. Once I was acclimated to TT I found it as easy to use as H&R block. I usually file a total of 5 returns (for us and family members) and they were all accepted and everyone got their refund in a few days with the exception of our refund which took about 6 weeks.

The e file process has always been seamless and straight forward to me that I will not paper file unless if I have to.

Filled out the identity theft affidavit and am sending it along with all the forms and our huge check. We'll see what happens!
Maybe you should wait to see if the identity thief paid your bill.

If only...
But we may already have a suspect. Her W2 was originally sent to the wrong person, and they know who it is....we'll see what happens.

I never efile for CA - even if they owe me a lot of money... I can wait the 8-12 weeks for my refund.

I efile the federal income tax if I'm owed a refund... I send paper versions if I owe.

I use TurboTax and see the state returns as the real money maker for Intuit. Filing state returns can quickly become more expensive than the federal package, I think once past first state, the software for additional is about $40 and another $20 to efile. Since I almost always owe on the state (and I screwed up if I get any refund), costs me a 50 cent stamp.

I e-filed the taxes today. April Fool's Day seemed appropriate -

Turbo Tax was free for Fed, $25 for CA. PIN was easy, took seconds.

Now drinking rum & coke.

I've used TurboTax since 1999, and I've always 'mailed' it in.
The only problem I ever ran into with TurboTax, was printing.
Before I learned to put it into a PDF file, when I'd hit print after completing the the return, it would print 35 or 40 pages!

I printed mine too. PDF and 60 pages. But my new printer does double side, so only 30 pages. The wonders of high tech.

Being basically lazy, i paid to have my state return e-filed. I also had to file the final 1041 and 541 for my trust, and that should be the end of that.
