Automatic program registration and activation by internet.
Creation of new return.
Import of data from previous year's return file.
Basic data entry.
Note that I installed IE6 (using the winetricks script with wine set to Windows 2000) to run this browser based software.
What does not
All appears to work.
What was not tested
Completion and online submission of a tax return not yet tested at early November 2009.
I've rated as gold because the application appears to work fine, but the caveat is that I have not yet completed and submitted a return. Please make your own mind up before relying on this report! I have tested with Wine 1.0.1 which is the standard version in Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic) and also Wine 1.1.31 and the currently bleeding edge 1.1.32. The user interface is browser based, so installing IE6 was necessary. I did this by using the winetricks script; it was necessary to configure Wine for Windows 2000 for this to work. After installation the Windows version may be changed if you wish.
