[Gentoo] Doing my taxes on Linux

As the usual forms began showing up in the mail over the past week or two, I’ve been thinking about how to do taxes this year. A lot has changed with the move to Oregon a bit over a year ago. So this will be the first time figuring out how to deal with taxes on my own.

I initially thought to just hire a tax preparer, but TurboTax is pretty popular. I’d really prefer to find a Linux-based program. I discovered that there’s a Web version of TurboTax, but I also discovered there’s been some information leakage.

After some searching, I found TaxGeek. Out of everything on Freshmeat and SourceForge, it looked the most current and maintained. Still waiting for a release for this year’s tax forms, though. We’ll see what comes.
