You should consider checking the freefile section of the IRS website 
next year to see if there is an online service you can e-file next 
year.  I've used an online, browser based service called for 
the last three years and highly recommend it.  Because I met their free 
filing qualifications, I was able to complete my taxes online 
(admittedly using Mozilla on a windows box) and file them for free.  I 
added the MA state form for free and filed it for something like $8.

By the way, if you don't qualify for freefile, you can still prepare you 
tases online for free - then either file them for a nominal fee ($8 if I 
remember correctly) or save your completed return as a PDF file, print 
out the forms, then snail mail them.

Good Luck.
