Seems like an ok deal, but HR block sent me a free cd of taxcut so it's not worth it to me. I did have to pay $15.00 to file electronically, but that was all. If you are planning on buying the box set, I would say just buy this and use it to store your tax return on so you can import it next year.

It's interesting that you complain about the fact that HR Block charges you interest on your own refund when you getting an $8000 refund back. You basically just lent that $8000 to the IRS interest free during 2006.
Here's a free tax tip for everyone. Tax refunds are not free money. They are basically what you overpaid during the year to the IRS and allowed them to use interest free until they refund your money the next year. Everyone who got a sizeable refund this year needs to go down to their HR department, fill out a new W-4, fix your exepmtions and withholding amounts and enjoy your money throughout the year.
Not everyone has an HR dept or consistent income from year to year.
If you don't pay enough in during the year, the IRS will smack you with
a penalty, so it is better to err on the side of paying extra. Having once received a large lump payment from a client late in December, I got to learn about this first hand. I'm not a laywer, consult your tax legal and professionals for actual advice.
PS, I use TaxACT which is a swell product.
Higher prices AND crappier blanks, no thank you

I've used both this & Turbo over the last severals years. I have a job, a house, and 2 Farm lelated partnerships. Pretty complex stuff as taxes go. Both programs work well now. No preference. If you have not tried Tax Cut for a few years it has improved greatly! ...as far as filing electronically? NEVER! The return is scrutinized much more than if you just pencil it in & mail it. ...and don't use the label they give you either. ...and if you really want to avoid an audit mail it off on april 15. The landslide of mail they get leaves them very little time to go over them. ...or... www.fairtax.org if you just want the IRS to GO AWAY!

Last year we had $0 taken out in federal taxes (on a $65k income) and received a $7k tax refund. Basically we received a refund of our social security contributions.
I don't see how that is possible.
SSI is a fixed amount for everyone. The only way to get a refund on SSI is if your employer took out too much, which last year, would likely only happen if you made more than $93K across two or more jobs (all employers stop taking out when your income from that job hits the max).
If you truly made an income of $65K and paid no federal tax I would like to know how, in more detail.
Unless you are saying that you had an additional income of $65K that you got a full SSI refund on...if that's the case, then that's possible if your other income was over $93K. Either way, it wouldn't be $7K...more like $5,600.
