I looked into these today as I was preparing the taxes of a friend. Since he's below the income threshold for using TaxAct free, that's what I used. And our state uses the free, fillable forms.
The only part I had some annoyance with was the new penalty stuff for health care coverage. Had to look around the IRS website a while to figure out how to prove he couldn't afford the basic coverage and that was why he was uninsured. There wouldn't have been much of a penalty, but every bit helps at the bottom.
