I have used taxact for several years now and have actually enjoyed it. However this year, I was WHAMMED with a huge fee to use it. I have used the free version almost every year, I do believe I purchased deluxe two or three years ago at $29.95. I have used a few of the itemized deductions every single year. NEVER have I been charged extra for that. This year, thinking it was free as always, I get to the end to file and not only am I charged $54.95 because I did itemize a few things and could not file unless I paid that amt, but the state is ALSO an EXTRA $54! OVER $100 plus the $10 it costs simply to have the money put from government into my account. LAST TIME I USE THIS!
