Unfortunately time to revive this again, yay! ? 
I don't think this one was mentioned before, OLT - OnLine Taxes
www.olt.com/main/home/default.asp

I guess Credit Karma is now Cash App Taxes
cash.app/taxes

Probably but regardless I think taxact was mentioned in the past discussion. I was reviving to post one that I don't think was & a change in another.

OLT pricing is compelling, I'd be curious to know if anyone has used them.

It seems most folks don't know how to read these things - and often they lead to getting spam emails if not 'cleaned' of the excess...so - this is the actual base URL itself:
https://www.freetaxusa.com

And ALL stuff after it - 'specially after it has /? is tracking info of some sort:

/?CMP=104&gclid=Cj0KCQiAqvaNBhDLARIsAH1Pq51nRlGgf5wmPNrZuiD3cJwTkQalQmmLr67jKHpoFsQqcXofcxInNIUaAi7XEALw_wcB


There are many, many variations and in all cases using ONLY the base URL is the least likely to bring undesirable results.

Back on topic - for us, short of fed & state being 100% free, the pricing differences have not been compelling enough to change vs. the ability to use last year's info as a starting point.
Being able to get it all done correctly in about 20 minutes total is better than starting all over again with another site/service (IMO).

Ah-hah !!
Most folks don't realize what a powerhouse the big G truly is & if they were openly truthful every one of their 'free' services would have a sort of disclaimer telling how all pages linked from them contain affiliations, tracking & userID info so as to make that company even more immensely profitable.

So, in the example link, everything that comes after this part=>
www.google.com/search?q=freetaxusa

Is more or less the equivalent of this:
