    Free File: Do Your Federal Taxes for Free
    http://www.irs.gov/efile/article/0,,id=118986,00.html

    So do any of you use Free File? I am thinking about using it for 2011 taxes (year 2012). Unless I am fortunate enough to to make more than $58,000 by then.

    The links had been truncated so I fixed them for you and added one in that seemed to be missing (since you mentioned three previous years 2007, 2008 and 2009 but only had two links). :)

    ... Thank you... There were some small errors. So I 'helped' fix the links. Now if there are no further editing issues, on to the discussion.

    Does anybody know if promotional exams are tax deductible or if certifications taken independent of a institution are tax deductible?

    Also if somebody has braces and only part of it is covered by medical insurance, it should be deductible right? I've read the data I could, but am uncertain.

    I use TurboTax online. It's free to file your federal taxes. Then I use my state's tax site to do the state taxes.

    I am looking into possible errors with one of my tax forms. Also, I am trying to obtain my real estate tax forms. Should have had it by now. Instead they half-baked it.

    "Mutual Fund and UIT Supplemental Information."

    What am I supposed to do with this?

    Does anybody know if I can write off my tax preparation fees for state as well? Or is it 'only' my 'federal' return? In other words, is this strictly confined to federal returns only?

    I am getting an extra amount for some stocks I sold. If I can research the original purchase date for my stock; if it was partial stock purchased over multiple instances, can I put down the total purchase price for the stocks/partial stocks?
