Default E filing tax return

Hi...has anyone in here ever E Filed their tax return? I was thinking of buying Turbo Tax and doing it myself for hubby & I but I'm not sure if I would be able to complete the 'claims for meals & lodging expenses' form online that shows how many nights away my hubby spent from home. Any help would be appreciated as always

I did mine using the online form filler from HR block. You can keep adjusting everything and re-download the forms in different variations... I did this in 2009 and it cost $15.95. easy to do with just your T4 to hand. printed the forms, sent them off and got a cheque back PDQ

H&R Block will get you maybe 50% of what you are due, so best advice is to use a tax accountant and then they will efile for you. I think the first year it is not possible to efile but they set up your account so you can do so after that.

My accountant does it all for about $100, and I get my refund within 10 days as a rule.
