Actually, the more I've played with the software the more it takes just as little time as Taxcaster. Of course, in modelling future taxes, I saved modelled tax returns labelled by years covered (i.e., years during roth conversions, years after delayed SS and RMD's). This way it's easy to go back into those returns and make quick changes if I want to modify the modeled returns to model something else.
