Taxbrain Preparation Software Summary

One thing not going for Taxbrain tax preparation service is the lack of free federal return which most if not all of the top services being reviewed offer. However, it does a good job in helping create simple tax returns. But for those having a complicated time completing their forms, help is readily available.
