  Free Services and Programs for U.S. Tax Time
It's U.S. Tax time. The IRS has a cool service now called Free File. I'm going to try it out this year.
Free File 

I found these two free programs at I've used TaxAct before and it was fairly easy. Sometimes they bug you to buy a deluxe edition but you can ignore that. Sometimes they want you to register at their website. You don't have to. Just don't use the program. There are lots of free fish in the sea.
