Tax software is now mostly "free" but when you file and you want to file electronically, that's where they get their money.
I tried one of the online services one year but then learned that they will only retain 3 years of returns against your account. You could save your returns to PDF but if you have to go back and amend?
I got the Premier version for $10 instead of the Deluxe for free. Premier supposedly has more info. for investments. Probably marketing speak. But for $10, how can you go wrong.
IIRC, the federal e-file is free but the state will cost you. I can mail it in.
