Hi I can help with this
What you've just described is how all of the software companies "get you."
There aren't any truly free Commercial packages HOWEVER ...
In North Carolina you can go to the NC Dept of revenue site and file for free there!
First, go here: http://www.dornc.com/
Then click on the link that says File Your Individual Income Tax Electronically: on the right side of the page, at the top
BUT FIRST you need to go here: http://www.irs.gov/uac/Free-File:-Do-Your-Federal-Taxes-for-Free to do your FEDERAL Taxes for free.
This is the only way I know of to get it done completely free. The software companies have to charge, or they'd go out of business, but the government sites are coming, of course, from non-profit (government) entities.
Hope this helps!
Positive Feedback of an “OK” or better (or an “Accept”) would be appreciated. That’s the ONLY way we experts are paid!
