Anyone file their taxes with the free online return preparers on the IRS website? I meant to ask the ARF hivemind about this, but I'm a terrible procrastinator and did it on the spur of the moment because the mood was upon me and I had to strike while the iron was hot. It went smoothly, but I wonder if there are any drawbacks to using the free automated services. So I know for next year.

Drawbacks? I don't see much of any. Mine was easy (not free since I'm way above the minimum adjusted gross income. If I remember it was somewhere in the $28k range?

I use turbotax for the web myself. Only took a week to get my money back.

I used TurboTax. Since I only have one W2 and no other income, it was quick and easy. Now I need to mail in the page you have to sign. I should have my return in a week or two.

The free preparers are only for low income.
Turbo Tax is too long a process, I can do my own in far less time.
Doing your taxes is just not that hard, even if you do long form, itemize, etc.

Besides, going thru it all will make you hate the gov't even more!

I know you already did yours, just info for others.
