  1. The catch is state taxes, or district taxes if you live in DC.

    Washington DC–last bastion of taxation without representation.

    Everyone is eligible to prepare their taxes and efile their returns FREE with TaxAct software ( I use this for my federal return and then I use the WebFile program that the state of Kansas provides for my state return. All returns are done electronically and I usually get my return via direct deposit within 2 weeks of filing. I’ve used TaxAct for 3 years now and it does as good a job as the retail products from Intuit and H&R Block.

  3. It doesn’t say if that is 52K per person or per couple. I am married and what if, by some chance the combined income of my wife and myself is over that? Do we not qualify?

    Its lack of state income tax makes it worth living in Texas.

    Well, Austin isn’t really Texas, but still.

    Yeah, don’t most adult couples that read this site make more than that?

    Individually it could be close, but 2 professional adults should pass that quick.

    Nice Magister, way to peg the socioeconomic status of everyone on this site. Because obviously only middle/upper class “professionals” have access to the internet and care about consumer issues.

    Huh? I’ve been filing my taxes for free (ok, for 37 cents) forever, regardless of income level.

    39 cents this year buddy

    Funny you mention that, I saw a DC license plate today that had “Taxation without Representation” as the tag-line. Is this something D.C. is proud of or some sort of protestation (which I can’t imagine being on an district-issued tag)

  10. marqlet says:

    to ACurmudgeon, “Taxation without Representation” is something that is offered printed on the license plates, like some states have universities or state mottoes. It is a way that the DC gov’t protests their status. When Clinton was president, his limo had the taxation plates, but those plates were quicly dispatched when the current occupier took office.
