We've been going to our CPA for DS's tax until last year but we wanted him to file on his own starting this year. We know that turbo tax military is free but we also read in places that H&R Block has free filing for military too. We've never used either, but any recommendations? Also, are there any cadet specific glitches to lookout for? They ARE considered active military, right? Can they itemize and deduct anything education related or is it not allowed since government pays them technically for everything? What about state of residence? Even if they stay at school 90% of the time, do they still use home residence for state tax? Any other cadet specific tax advice for first timers would be greatly appreciated. I leave everything to my CPA, so I'm not much of a help. Thank you for any advice! By the way, those of you who've already tried, what are the differences in turbo tax freedom vs turbo tax military? Is the military version a lot more military specific, catered to their needs?
