I am at the point in my life where I have to start doing taxes and would prefer not to have to make my mom do them for me anymore. Whenever I ask for help, people constantly tell me to use TurboTax.
First of all, I highly doubt TurboTax is open source much less libre but more importantly it's not really effective unless you pay for the various different "premium" accounts and so on.
It seems insane that I have to pay to pay the government....
I know that I can do my taxes without this kind of software but that seems to be theoretical and not practical.
How do you guys do your taxes? What libre tools are there for taxes? I have found some open source alternatives but I can't find them in the Hyperbola repositories, or else I don't know what I'm looking for.
I'm in the US by the way. Of course taxes are different in different countries. I'm curious about what people think about this in general though.
