Tax season is here and, if you're like many people, you probably prefer to do your taxes yourself with the help of tax software. In fact, you probably have a particular product you've used for years, whether that's TurboTax, TaxACT, H&R Block or something else.

However, if you haven't looked at the other options in a while, it might be a good time to do it. Even this year, the major providers have changed up their offerings a bit. Let's take a look at a few tax scenarios and which software could work best.

Basic taxes

If your tax needs are very basic, we've got some good news for you this year. Both TaxACT and TurboTax have free options that, in addition to the standard free federal filing, offer free state filing as well. State filing usually costs anywhere from $10 to $35.

This is strictly if you're filing form 1040EZ/A, which means no help for fancy deductions, investments or anything else. They also won't import information from last year's tax returns, although they can pull your W-2 information to save you a bit of time.
