For the past 6 years, I have been a volunteer tax preparer and I loved using Taxwise to prepare my taxes. It did calcuations for me but I had to figure everything else out. I hate turbotax. I don't want to be asked a bunch of questions, I already know what to enter.
Since I didn't do volunteer taxes this year(to busy selling and buying houses), I don't have free access to the taxwise software and would like to find something kind of like it -- Something for people who are used to doing their own taxes. Taxwise is too expensive for me. It's more of a tax preparatoin software for people who do other people's taxes.

Anybody used any other software (reasonbly priced) that lets users enter their data directly on the form without a bunch of questions that help "guide" the tax preparer?

BTW, I don't really want to use the online stuff - too many questions there and I don't really qualify for the free stuff.

Oh yeah, I have to do Oklahoma and MS state taxes as well.

I use TaxCut. It has a feature that will show the form you want on the bottom of the screen and you click on the line in the form that you want to fill and it will display the input page for that line on the top of the screen. So if you want to skip the questions you can just go directly to the forms and click on the line you want in the form you want and input the information. I remember it being that easy, but since I have not done my taxes yet this year I hope it still is. Sorry I can't speak to the state taxes. I know that you can get them on Taxcut, but I never buy that feature. I do Michigan every year and thier forms are on the internet as an adobe form. Some other states that I have filled in the past also have this type of form system. So check those states goverment sites.
