So, I filed my taxes this morning.  Due to unemployment for the second full year, I was not eligible for the Earned Income Credit.  Due to Mrs Potatohead getting married, I lost my status as Head of Household.  I neither owed anything nor got a refund.  But it's done.

I used TaxAct for the third year.  It's also the one I use for the few clients I have left who ask me to do their taxes for them.  It's inexpensive if you need more than just the basic return, and it does all the calculations for you.

I've linked to the Deluxe version here, but I just use the free online version.  So far, I've had no need to use any of the extra forms or archival services.
