Free (or by donation) 2019 Tax return programs

Deal Link:
Studio Tax is the most popular one. The 2019 tax program is available for download now. Though it's free, they do appreciate with a small contribution.

There are some other free ones as well. Unlike UFile, TurboTax, etc. these ones do not have the maximum income restriction.
Simple Tax

+1 for studio tax. I've been using it for almost 10 years now. It might not look as pretty as TurboTax but it does the job just as well. Never understood why anyone would shell out money for TurboTax when there's a free alternative.

Darn it. I've been using simple tax for years. Can anyone summarize what's changed?

definitely

it's a great program

(and not directed at grasshopper at all) But consider donating a few dollars to them. It's worth it

A. Unfortunately you have to do that manually. Only StudioTax returns can be imported by StudioTax.


Darn :/

I use studio tax as well but Turbotax has been free for years. Same with the one on H&R blocks website.

I also use Studio Tax. I like the fact that all my info is kept on my computer and not online like some of the others.

I dont care about Ethics, morals, rules or laws. I will apologies only when I get caught.
I try not to apologies but sometimes do it. not because its right thing but it benefits me.

I used Simple Tax for the past few years and had no idea they were sold. We all jumping ship now or what? Seems like Studio Tax is popular in this thread.

Am I correct that TurboTax, H&R Block, UFile, etc. and similar retail programs are only free if income is less than $20,000?

Others like StudioTax do not have such restriction. But all software programs, free or not, limit 20 returns.
