My Opinion of IRS Free File:

For the 2008 tax filing, the Internal Revenue Service has extended its free online filing system to all federal tax payers regardless of income. Previously, it was restricted to people making less than a specified amount. This didn't make much sense in my opinion, as using the IRS' system cannot realistically cost the government more money without considering something like kick-backs from other tax companies (or considering the impact on the tax preparation software industry. Unlike other tax-prep solutions, the IRS system only provides online forms and basic calculation functionality, but does not have a user-friendly interview to help the user better understand what is necessary to do.

It relies on Shockwave Flash, which means it's still not very useful for people using PowerPC-based computers, such as older Apple products.
