With four out of five returns expected to be filed electronically this year, online tax software aims to make do-it-yourself filing easier.

H&R Block Deluxe and Turbo Tax Deluxe ranked closely when tested by Consumer Reports. The main differences are in design. Turbo Tax had easy-to-read explanation boxes while H&R Block was more mobile-friendly. 

Tax Act, E-Smart and Tax Slayer are other popular options.

"They all guarantee that their calculations will be accurate," says Consumer Reports senior editor Tobie Stanger.

The IRS says 70 percent of taxpayers are eligible for "Free File". Those with income under $62,000 can use software through the IRS website to file a free federal return.

If your income's higher, the site can still verify that the tax software you're using is legitimate.
