Can you use taxact for free if you have a mortgage?

it depends if you paid enough mortgage interest and have enough other deductions to make it beneficial to itemize. if you don't have enough deductions and you use the standard deduction it should be free.

For 1040EZ I'd go with turbo tax. Free for that - state is free too. 100% online.
