You can use the electronic forms provided for free at irs.gov. This is fine if your taxes are relatively simple. However, if you have sold and/or rented properties, have a lot of deductions, sold stocks or all of the above, then you may want to get something like TurboTax.

You can file the yourself for free unless you're a complete idiot. It's really not hard. Go to irs.gov/freefile

You can do them online yourself, for free. However, for the last five years I have paid someone to do my taxes, and even though he charges me, he saves me a lot of money in tax. He's an independent guy though.

Rocco's tax service only charges $20. He's cheap because he doesn't have overhead, no office or phone. Just email him all your tax and credit card information and he'll get back to you in a week. This is my first year using him so I'll let you know how it goes. It's been 6 days so I should hear from him soon.

1) If taxes are relatively straightforward and income is within guidelines, free file
2) Software for $50 or less
3) Online not free for $50 or less
4) H+R Block an Jackson Hewitt are cheap for working with a human. Neither is much better than online which they use at the office for you.
Anything better costs more.
Have all W-2, 1099's and credits info ready.
