    There are those who aren't paid tax preparers for whom this is a benefit, and I'm one of them. I submit the taxes for my whole family and use all 5 free e-files for Fed and NY State. I'm sure there are other families that use Turbo Tax the same way, making it actually more cost-effective.

    Quite a few people I know are filing on behalf of their parents, children or significant others.

    I believe the terms are for "immediate family" for those extra returns. I used to do mine and my handicapped son's until he had to quit work and no longer needs to file.

    I've never seen any terms that limit e-files to "immediate family". The only restrictions I've seen are for paid preparerrs and the number of returns that can actually be e-filed...

    Here's what Turbo Tax says:

    I felt sure it was in the wording on my Turbo Tax years ago when I first started buying it. I was wrong or they have since changed it.

    I just looked at the wording on the H&R Block and it says 5 but does not have anything about "immediate family".
