Okay, I didn't actually check the clock  
But I'm pretty sure it took longer to install TurboTax than it did to calculate our return. I may switch back to actual paper next year, except that I do so like the convenience of e-filing.

If your return is that simple I think you can file on the turbotax web site without installing anything.

I always file paper and mail it in... and I have my refund back as of last week. Is it really all that inconvenient to put a stamp on it and stick it in the mailbox?

Not so much the "stamp and mail," as the "wonder if it's arrived and been accepted."

We use certified mail to know when it's arrived.

I used These Guys this year. Very easy.

Turbo-Tax is pretty quick and convenient, particularly if one also uses Quicken. On the other hand, it takes us a bit longer than you probably required, what with needing to file a Schedule F (Ranch), two Schedule C's (Carmenetta's Cottage, and MSB Fine Art Photography), the usual W-2 1040 stuff, plus two separate portfolios for retirement investment not otherwise tax-deferred. Blech.

Glad your's went easy. Oh, and that Schedule F? Can't be filed electronically.

We e-filed while doing it on paper. It was much cheaper that way.
