Using TurboTax online is really easy. I've done it twice now. I was definitely nervous the first time, but had someone walk me through it. This year it was really easy to do on my own. Just be sure to pick the basic one, it's free.
I'd ask others if they've used it and would be willing to talk you through it. I didn't use it for State though, I just used Illinois' online e-file. Also free.
I actually did mine through Turbo Tax last night and I'm going to go over them later today and file them. It was super easy. I'm glad I went that route instead of paying people at H&R Block or something crazy.
My half of a deposit and 1st month's rent on a new apartment! I'm moving in April, and it's nice to know I've got that much covered.
I'm going to try to save what's left from that... but I also need to replace my laptop and eventually my iMac, buy a bed frame, a new desk.... and I've been wanting to get Mario Kart for my Wii for a while now! But hopefully I put most of it in savings after I move.
Yeah, I've already had to stop myself from buying all sort of other things... As long as I remember that I'm moving in April, and I won't want to have to pack and carry and move even more clothes/books/shoes/movies/video games... then I should be okay on spending. Hopefully. After April... maybe if I put the money in savings before then I'll forget about it...
