Question for those in the know.
I filled out the long form for years. Things got a little more complicated and I started using a tax service.
Now I still use the tax service and was told that likely it would be cheaper and easier to just go back to the short form and do it myself.
I have good health insurance and medicine insurance, home paid for no interest to deduct, and average otherwise.
What is the verdict.--thanks in advance. ole Oaul

I use Turbo Tax Delux, simple and straight forward questions. Never had any problems. But if you have Rentals or some of the special case issues you may want to use another service. I have no deductions so the short form is the best in my case.

You have no need for the long form if you have no real deductions. I use the free Turbo Tax but I can do it on the form and get the exact same numbers.

You can file your short form free most places - taxact.com etc -

Do it yourself on paper and it's free regardless of the form you use. Sounds like you have a simple straightforward situtation anyway. Why pay to get to pay taxes?
