Filing US federal taxes under Linux

I've used Turbo Tax with Fedora and it was pretty good last year and this year. Last year I had a couple of complicated stock selloffs to deal with and Turbo Tax was great for that. I had used Tax Act in the past but one year it wouldn't get past a particular page even though the year before it worked flawlessly. The only problem I have had with Turbo Tax this year was the MA state new required Heath Care form. I didn't realize I didn't have to fill in all the questions. When I got to one checkbox it popped up a dialog stating that it was a field that was automatically filled in. That dialog kept popping up in a loop when I closed it. After closing the browser and going back I simply clicked ok after filling in the most basic information and everything worked fine.

I think we can thank Firefox and the Mozilla team more than anything else, for having a standard complaint, multi-platform competitor to IE.
