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.
