so if you file taxes in NY
The online tax filing through the state is actually good?! As in, I stopped paper filing our taxes because calculating just the tax due in NY (not our taxable income, just, here's a number that's taxable, now what is the tax due on that) had me tearing out my hair. But I had to file a tax return for SteelyKid this year [*], and the state online version added things up and calculated tax due for me, which was great—I had to file a 1040 for her and the fillable PDF doesn't even add things for you. (It turns out I could have gotten free software to efile for her, which I will remember next year, because calculating the tax due on her federal return required a 27-line worksheet.)

[*] Okay, I didn't have to file a separate return, I could have put her income on ours, but then that would cost us more taxes, whereas filing hers separately meant zero tax due on her income. (We put a monthly amount into an account in her name for college, because Chad's college has a really good tuition benefit and so a 529 account doesn't make sense, and this year the earnings on that exceeded the threshold for filing.)

Anyway: New Yorkers! File your state taxes online!
