Tax guide 2014: The best online services for tackling your 1040

Yardena Arar | March 18, 2014
Need help filing your federal and state income taxes? More than a dozen online services are vying for your business, promising to keep your refunds high and time investment low.

Checking out the competition

The rest of the tax prep services on the IRS's FreeFile site all offer paid services for people who don't qualify for FreeFile, but the cheapest services provide little more than glorified forms (which you can fill out for free on the IRS's site), and the more expensive services don't really match TurboTax or H&R Block in terms of features. Interface preferences are, of course, highly personal, but the bottom line hasn't changed much: TurboTax remains the service of choice if you want the most features and options, H&R Block should appeal to people who want a bit of in-person interaction, and TaxAct will deliver a solid product for people who don't need the bells and whistles of the pricier competitors.
