In many states, you can file for your federal tax returns for free - and do them online through www.freetaxusa.com. They'll file electornically for you as well. For a fee, you can have them do your state and other taxes as well, but there are also links for which states offer their own online tax returns. This will be the third year I use them. I'm a complete tax dummy, but I was able to follow previous tax returns my friends husband had done for me in the past (he's an accountant) to do my taxes. I'm only awaiting one W2 and I can file. Electornic filing with direct deposit you can have your taxes back in 10-16 days.

And if you are a home owner, make sure you claim the interest you pay on your mortgage (I cannot believe how many people don't know you can do that) - itemize!
