"I am a 1099 ind contractor & along with my husbands regular job. We paid $0 for our fed return where many others tried to upsell & charge us for the 1099 alone. Very easy to use with nice interface. Love this product!"
"If you use a 1099-MISC this is probably the best program that doesn't charge extra for it. I've used it for 3 returns now without any issues. It's fast and easy. 'm so happy I found them and it's working great for me right now."

"I started my taxes on two other sites that offered "free" filing. Because I had 1099 income, neither was actually free. Third time's a charm. It's really free and super easy to use, while still covering everything necessary. Definitely will use again next year!"
