Tax filing programs

I have had my taxes done by a family friend using one of the tax programs for the past 3 years or so. It seems that tax return preparation, like everything else is getting real expensive lately. I was thinking about buying a program since he has moved away this year but I have a few questions. First, is any product that much better than another??? I have a simple filing (house, kids, etc) except for the fact that I moved to Indiana and still work in Illinois. I have been in Indiana since April 2006. Both of my employers last year were in Illinois. My wifes employer is in Illinois as well except for a short lived part time job in Indiana that only earned her like $503 in reportable income. Should I buy a program and will it work simple enough for me and are there any good programs that offer 2 state options? Or should I just have them filed professionally? Thanks for any help.

H&R block has a program on their website you can use and for an extra fee you can have a tax preparer (spell?) review it for you before you submit it.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

Most programs are free to use. I've been using Turbo Tax for years. You can even go to the I.R.S. site and do it there too. They're abundant now and doing it online is easy and safe. Some of the programs like Turbo Tax even has a review option so before you submit it goes through every little detail to make sure it's accurate. If you've paid for the program you get tech help as well either for the program or tax advice.

Yaaayyy technology.

Oh also my wife said if you have state farm you can get a code to use the online version for free. No point in buying a program that you need to rebuy every year. just do it all online.

I use Taxact online. Go to taxact.com

It is completely web based, it will ask you all the questions an accountant would ask you. You can save your work, come back later to complete your return. Also, they will save all of your info, so come this time next year, much of your info will already be completed. Took me 15 minutes to file my taxes this year because of this software. It will cost you around 20.00 to file your federal and state states with them. The software will also check for errors. After you submit your taxes, you will get an email stating your taxes were submitted. Later that day or the next day, you will find out if they were accepted by the State and the IRS.

If you have state farm and register on their site or are already registered and you input one of your policies so you can manage it online you can use TurboTax Deluxe for free. I registered, waited a few hours for the policies to show up in my account, and walahh!! there was the link for free filing!!
Saved me about 50.00.
