    I mail mine in two days before the deadline by certified mail. I always set my taxes up to where I have to pay but while avoiding a penalty. That way Uncle doesn't get to use my money during the year. It sits in my money market account earning a little interest. Uncle's not going to get his until I have to give it to him (not before and not after, Lord willing).

    I used the TaxCut software to prepare my taxes, but I did not e-file. I've already mailed them in because I have a refund coming.

    I e-filed mine last Friday using Turbotax (which I've used for years).

    I use TaxAct. As someone who's in the business, it's as good as it gets when it comes to tax software. It's especially good for ministers as it doesn't freak out over housing allowances and Schedule C and SE peculiarities for ministers.

    I use TaxAct for my federal taxes, and use the Illinois Department of Revenu website for my state. I e-filed on a Friday night, and got my state refund the following Wednesday, and my Federal two weeks after filing.

    I think it has to do with using the States website to file. I also got it that quick last year.

    My boss filed her taxes the Monday after I filed on Friday using TaxAct for both Federal and State. She got her Federal refund on Wednesday before I got mine on Friday, and her State came in on the same day I got my Federal. I was suprised she got her Federal sooner than me I thought the IRS only direct deposited on Fridays.

    I got my federal back in about 10 days. I need to see if I got my state back yet.

    Living in Tennessee, I don't have to worry about state taxes and the Hall Tax, fortunately ;)

    Looks like Turbo Tax this year but I'm wating until the 14th since I always have to pay dearly... The Church doesn't take any taxes out of my support check so I pay everything at once...

    Why don't you pay quarterly taxes? You can avoid penalties that way.

    I promised the small claims tax judge that I would mail in. That adventure cost be $600 20 years ago and I got a $6000 education from it. Still have never been audited and probably never will.

    I used Turbo Tax to prepare my return and snail mailed my hard copy federal last Monday (3/24). Hope to have my refund within 3 weeks.

    I'd like to e-file, but I have two issues with it. I don't want to submit my personal information through a commerical company like Turbo Tax. They might lose it, get hacked, putting me at risk for identity theft and/or later target me for marketing purposes based on my tax filing information.

    Also, why should one have to pay an additional fee to e-file? I already paid to buy Turbo Tax? I'd like to see Turbo Tax PC software add an E-file capabaility that "submits" or emails the completed 1040 directly to the IRS...then I'd become an E-filer.

    A local retired firefighter who now has a tax filing business. $30 for my wife and I combined (and with itemization). Great deal! If you are in Ohio and would like to know who, PM me. I drop off and pick up, so you can probably mail it to him.

    I sure feel sorry for the poor college student in the dumb Statue of Liberty get-up standing with his sign in the rain as I drive by on the way to the post office...
    Liberty Tax. Isn't that some kind of oxymoron?
