    Recent posts have revealed that Intuit, the parent company to TuboTax is not on our side. I have used their product for a number of years but I will not sleep well at night if I use them again this year. Does anybody have good information on RTKBA & 2nd A friendly alternatives to an on line tax prep service? Better yet, one that would allow for a seamless transition from TurboTax?

    I am looking for an answer to this as well...I sent them an email asking if it is true and after a week I have not received an answer...I have used Turbo Tax for almost 10 years and been very pleased with the results but I don't agree with their reported stance on the 2nd Amendment.

    TaxAct is a good one, no anti-2A policies as far as I know.

    I have been using H&R Block software for several years now. It works well. I honestly don't know if they're on record as being anti like Intuit. I admit :eek: to using Quicken from Intuit, but there's no viable option IMHO.

    I've used "tax act" for many years and have been very happy with it.

    You could always use an accountant...

    Not only are you supporting the local little guy, you can ask them what their 2A view is and if you like the answer, you can use their fee is a deduction on next years taxes.

    I'm a 2A CPA so I definitely agree with this. A lot of our clients are 2A supporters and many are LEO, gives us something else to talk about other than their personal/business taxes and accounting.

    I'm looking at using Taxact. Is it totally free? They seem to imply that it is.

    Also, you might find a new 2A/shooting buddy... strength in numbers.

    Another benefit is that you might find a new 2A/shooting buddy.

    There is strength in numbers.

    I tried tax act before and after filing it wouldn't allow us to open and view the forms any longer. Did they fix that?

    My wife keeps excellent financial records, has and MBA with additional training in accounting, and took the H&R Block training -- but keeping up with all the changes every year was a pain, so we went to H&R Block to save headaches. The accountant assigned to us quit and opened her own business, so we went with her. Now doing our taxes is actually a pleasurable experience. Once a year we go to visit a friend, have a pleasant chat, and while we do the taxes get taken care of painlessly. We lucked out. Perhaps you might as well

    This is true. I've come across some great deals on guns and other gun items and was able to get a ride along with Texas DPS. Two or our clients are Texas Rangers so that's kind of cool.
