Thanks for the tip. Looks like NY offered it last year for incomes under $57k but they have yet to post this year. I'll have to keep my eyes peeled once Jan ends and see what all my options are.
Nice. Unfortunately with all of these 57k ones I used to qualify but then I went and got married last year and they don't take # of people in the household into account... And we became state farm customers for home insurance but then they stopped offering it free for insurance clients. Still working on that 1m at Vanguard too... Looks like I will go for the state farm checking account at this point.
Oh, I should have mentioned, the h&r block one is basically turbo tax, you just do it on h&r's site, but I think that means you can transfer your information from past years from both turbo tax straight or h&r block.
Actually, hold up. Rugorak, did you see here? http://www.tax.ny.gov/pit/efile/elf_individual.htm
It looks like efile is free no matter what assuming you're using a standard software. In other words you could use any of the softwares that give you free federal file and then they are prohibited from charging you for filing your New York state return. I guess because efiling is mandatory now for New York state.
Maybe I am really tired but I am confused as all hell when I look at turbo tax's site: http://turbotax.intuit.com/
The info when you click "state additional" and "free efile included" seems contradictory. The former suggests you have to pay for state software. The latter suggests that it is free and that state efile is free when you use it online but $19 if you use a download/disc version (though here it mentions that efile fees do not apply to New York). Maybe the free-ness is just a limited time thing if you do it before Jan 30th. Anyway, time for bed.
