    but I guess I forget how much I should be thankful for gigabit broadband on my work machine, not to mention hefty portions of RAM.

      understand math), there's no requirement whatsoever that all the forms it prepares must be printed out.  Many of those forms are merely supplemental and supportive, showing how the various calculations are made.  It's wise to keep a copy of them in case of future audit, but by no means mandatory.

      •  Here, you're a tad insulting. (0+ / 0-)

        I think my math is pretty good (I'm trained as an algebra teacher, after all). Moreover, the TT interface was difficult-to-use, and I'm not making up the bit about the requirement to print unnecessary forms. This really happened.

        On the last point, fairly, I wasn't running the most up-to-date Mac OS when I did taxes last year, and this may have made a difference.
