It's getting to be that time of year again... I've used TurboTax for nearly 10
years, but reports are that Intuit is getting farther and farther from
supporting opens source.
I don't want to maintain a web-connected Windows box just to do my taxes. Last
year I tried using a VMWare windows image, but TurboTax refused to update
there, so I had to fire up an old Win2k box.
I don't want to upload my financial data to a web-based tax prep site.
Are there any tax prep options (with state support) that aren't so totally
locked into Windows?
Maybe I should go back to pencil and paper... my taxes this year should be
simpler than they have been for a the past few years.
