I'm still looking for help at the HPR table at the North East Gnu/Linux Fest, and I've also found a good way to file my taxes without using windoze.

Oh yeah, and I have a cool, fun song this time.

Hacker Public radio's most prolific contributor (by more than twice our second place host) is Klaatu. While we all try to catch up to him, have a look at his website.

Thank you so much for listening.

P.S. Some people enjoy finding mistakes. For their enjoyment, I have probably included a few.

More the one online tax filing option

As pokey mentioned, there is for online tax filling. But what he didn't mention is that also has an online tax filing product. From my experience Linux with Firefox is supported by TurboTax.

Overall, use what works best for you.

Thanks scriptmonkee

I didn't know that turbotax had an online service. I appreciate you adding that to the comments, and adding to the general knowledge base here.

I heard of one more that seemed to be well liked after I posted the show, but I can't seem to remember now what that was. If anyone else has more suggestions for getting taxes done with Linux, this is as good a place as any to post a link.
