$150? That's more along the lines of - hey, I found a $20 in the pocket of my jeans. Guess I forgot it was there when I tossed 'em in the laundry.
Yea...totally agree. $150 is a nice way to jumpstart the old savings.
I am a Turbo Tax fan, but agree with Dom. If all you are doing is 1040EZ, I'd skip the $20-$30 and do it the long hand way. As much as I hate to say it, it's always good to learn how to do something the long-hand way before using the short cuts.
