Help with taxes online or otherwise ?
« on: February 08, 2018, 10:53:31 AM »
 A friend of mine in Maine wants to know if there is a cheap way to do taxes online. I seem to have heard of a free online tax system but I forget the name of it or who good it is.

 I'm also not sure how easy it is to do taxes online using a smart phone ?

Turbo Tax, Tax Act, Tax Slayer, HR Block...  Tons of free federal tax sites online for basic taxes.  They usually cost something if you have capital gains or even odder stuff going on.

Some states have a free tax submission portal.  That's what I use in PA.  If you go with one of the tax prep sites, then there is usually a cost for the state taxes.

I've never done it on a phone or tablet.  Only a desktop or laptop.
