To use this code, you need:

Quick Start for the Impatient
However, you can still use the code in your mozilla-based browser without an install - but you may run into security and other sorts of glitches.

1) If you prefer to install the CPAN module PDF::Reuse (listed above) by hand instead of using the installer, follow the directions below.
From the command line type:
		$ su
		root# cpan
You will see something like the following:
		Terminal does not support AddHistory.

		cpan shell -- CPAN exploration and modules installation (v1.7602)
		ReadLine support available (try 'install Bundle::CPAN')

Now type:
		cpan> install PDF::Reuse
Answer all the questions (they will be system specific) to the best of your abilities. Upgrade packages as needed. And when you are done, PDF::Reuse will be installed and you are ready to go.

2) Run (as user) /opt/TaxGeek07/ 3) Follow the directions for creating a new project below.

Getting Started with the Program

Creating a New Project

TaxGeek has a sample project "test" included to illustrate the program's capabilities. This is the default project that you will encounter. Explore to your heart's content, and when you are ready, go to the menu pane at left and select "New Project". Type in the name (no spaces please), and click the "Next" button. This will take you to Form 1040.

How TaxGeek Works

TaxGeek is unlike most other tax programs at this phase as it only contains HTML versions of the tax forms themselves. There is no wizard or interview option. (This may change in the future.) Thus, the Form 1040 is the basis of everything. There is no 1040A or 1040EZ option at this time.
