There’s no way in hell I’m paying Turbotax $50 (plus $xx for the state return) just because I have to fill out schedule D when I file. I looked at a few of the other tax filing programs and was thinking of going with TaxAct. I don’t have a very complex return for 2008. Other then stocks and options trades my return is fairly boring. TaxAct is offering me free federal efile and $14 for state efile. Sounds good or is there something better?
Also, and this is a long shot, has anyone here ever applied for mark-to-market accounting for themselves? I was thinking of doing that for 2009 but I don’t know how difficult it would be. I figure I should go ahead and start researching this.
