Is this service only for people who file a 1040 form? What about those of us who itemize deductions?


Hi KrisD,

This service is for all tax forms (1040, 1040A, 1040 EZ). You can even do a Schedule c and Schedule C-EZ on this software for free. It will allow also you to choose the greater of deductions, itemized or standard.
