Prices dropped today on Premier (matching a previous deal) digital version which matches the sale price on the disc versions. Both include federal, efile, and state. Great way to use those no rush shipping credits. Skipped the last deal hoping it would drop more but looking less likely until late into the season.

My best Tax advise is do a paper filing. Many years that I did e-filing, sometime I forget to put in some few hundred dollars income from the dividend. I still paid over $10,000 in Tax but I'm not perfect in filing tax , there are some mistakes. IRS always send a letter to me. After I did a paper filing, never have any issues.
I believe that IRS scan every e-filing with the computer for any major or minor errors. That can not be said when you send them 50+ pages paper.
What you're basically saying is you don't know how to accurately file taxes so you choose the way you least likely to get caught. Sounds like an ethical solution.

Also, the noun is advice not advise...

Sorry if its a noob question, but what version would i need to be able to file my etrade 1099? It says something about employee stock plans but nothing about independent trading. Do i need the "self employed" version?

You probably need the Home & Business version:

Just wanted to throw this in here. I have a ton of stock transactions, so i have to pay for Turbotax for ease of use of the import and preventing fat fingers. However, I tried Credit Karma's free one last weekend and it was better than I expected.

A friend of mine has a basic W2 return, but he cashed out his 401K, and when I tried to use the free turbotax it forced me to upgrade to Deluxe for $30 plus $36.99 for state. So I tried Credit Karma to see if I could get away without paying.

Credit Karma has the sections organized into categories similar to TT. The interface was kinda bland, and it didn't have the thorough explanations that TT has about what certain things are. Finding that one form I needed took me 10 minutes for some reason. It's not common, but it didn't show up in the section I thought it would be in. It does the W-2 import if you get the EIN number and box 1 right.

In the end, it came out with the same number TT did. It may have been $1 more due to rounding. It's still kinda new and it would leave me a little scared if I used the program alone. If I wanted to save money what I would do is do my taxes in TT first, then do them in CK to verify that I got the same number, then submit them from CK for free (including state e-filing)

Since this is a TT Premier thread, yes CK forces you to manually enter every stock transaction in a spreadsheet. That's why I was still willing to pay for TT this year. But if you only had a handful of transactions, you should be able to use CK pretty easily and save the $70-80.

I've been a big fan of TT for the last 8 years or so, but when Credit Karma can make a pretty capable product and charge nothing for it, TT needs to drop their price to compete with them. If I'm paying $45 for the software already, it's robbery to make me pay $36.99 for a state e-file.

If Turbotax is reading this thread which I think they are cuz they put the squash on a discount link a couple of years back, I have a message for you. You want to know your price elasticity? I think $50 is where I'm at for Premier plus Fed and State e-file. I would still use TT to double check my number, but if I didn't have many stock transactions I would go with CK and do my taxes twice. It only takes an extra 30 minutes or so plus it's a double check. TT interface is very good for nervous people that haven't done their taxes before, but once you start getting a consistent return, people will be more comfortable going with the free program. Just a hint. I know your stock has gone up 38% in the past year, but you're really pushing it with pricing right now compared to your free competitors.
