Has anybody here used an online tax service to file their taxes?
Has anyone used the e-file services found on line and are they all encompassing when itemizing deductions? Do they allow a direct deposit refund to your account without charging a fee thru a third party?
I’ve used TaxAct for the last 4 to 5 years.
But my taxes are pretty simple.
I mail them in, instead of doing electronic reporting.
is the free one, sendmeyourSSN.com?
I don’t see a problem./s
Used them and yes their prompts ask for all pertinent info and yes, direct deposit is an option. No issues with mine or any family members Ive used it for.
I’ve used this site for several years. Never had a problem. https://www.freetaxusa.com
I used https://www.freetaxusa.com last year and it was free and they did my federal and state and I got the refund fast via wire to my bank account.
I only use the ones linked directly off the official state & fed & local tax websites.
I have been using FreeTaxUSA for the last several years. For an extra $20 I get state filing and audit protection.
I use “ www. freetaxes .ru “
Actually no, don’t click that link!
Did you have to mail in any tax forms to the feds or your state?
I have used TaxAct for years with no problem. I don’t do direct deposit though. And I send in a paper form.
Same here. Just mail them in old school. Really simple for mine. The only thing my accountant asks me is “OK you didnt pay obamacare, wanna pay the penalty again?”. Havent done it yet this year but I have to look into it again.
Why? They offered to double my tax return..........
Even if you file electronically you still have to send in a paper form with your signature.
Why would you pay the penalty?
Excuse me - - -
Free and Online and Tax
in the same sentence???

I use Tax Slayer. It is free for Active Duty Military but does cost some money (~$20-30) to file for non-military. You don’t have to pay up front either. You can have the amount deducted from your refund, which works out for me.
I have been using 1040now.net for the last five years with no problems.
