Just did a trail run doing my 2016 tax e-filing
« on: January 27, 2017, 12:03:04 PM »
I got all of my Form 1099Rs via my U.S. Government websites. I decided to do a trail run using Turbo Tax on-line again for this tax year.
Our previous last 2 years of taxes were done for free with Turbo Tax and will do it again for free for 2016. BTW, a foreign address are now being accepted on the IRS tax forms e-filed from Turbo Tax. 
Since our taxes are so simple to do, it just took me about 45 minutes answering all of Turbo Tax's questionnaire. Couldn't e-file our taxes yet, because forms for State are not yet available, but Turbo Tax will notify me via e-mail when the forms for State are available. Anyway, we're in no hurry to file our taxes.

I guess you are lucky Art, it is almost the end of January and I only have two forms and need many more, I hope they come soon so I can do my taxes before we leave for Cebu next month, otherwise I will just file an extension and finish them when we get back.

Since I have an account with the SSA site, they mailed me my 1099R to my Texas mail forwarding service, which scans all my mail and I just download what documents I want a copy of or I can request to have them mail it here at my home in the P.I..
