The IRS began accepting e-filing today.   Early filers can get started by filing for a tax refund.   

Although if you live in California, you may have to wait for your state tax refund.  See  http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2009/01/16/california-forced-impose-day-delay-tax-refunds/  (Update for Californians.  If you can file now it may be the only way to get a prompt refund.   See http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/28712615/)

Here are some links to software and solutions for do it yourselfers.  See our previous look at these solutions herehttp://moneycafe.com/blog/2008/12/time-to-look-at-tax-software/
