Top Ten Best Tax Software Programs

Anyone who has had to struggle through manually preparing their taxes once they get more complicated than the basic 1040 EZ knows what a lifesaver tax software programs can be. Having a guide steer you through the process of preparing your tax returns is so much easier when you don't have to wade through all the IRS jargon. With good tax software programs, all you need to do is have your documentation ready and be able to answer a few questions (did you get married last year?) and you are on your way.

This list contains the top 10 best tax preparation software programs.

The only free program in the top three that did not require me to upgrade just because I had one instance of 1099-Misc ( considered by IRS as self employment/business income). They also used my info from a pdf copy of previous year return to save some time.

I love filing my tax return with Tax Cut. It's very user friendly and takes very little time to do. I especially appreciate that I don't have to file on some form and triple check my math. Instead, I use TaxCut and it does all the math for me.
