TaxAct 2006 Standard Edition is the US federal income tax software that can be downloaded for free. This review does not include state or Deluxe versions that cost money.
Update to previous test data: Printing now works after installation of Courier New font from http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=34153 (download the courie32.exe and execute it under wine).
I also added (paid for) the California state software; it installs and runs correctly.
TaxAct's automatic updates also work correctly (it does ask before installing).
What does not
There are some minor cosmetic problems in that some check boxes are not shown checked or filled in when viewing the tax form.
What was not tested
Deluxe Edition, states other than California.
