Customer Service Very Nice

I contacted them via email about opening an account and they were very prompt to respond. It does require a branch visit. It is not too far from Shreveport so if you going there to gamble from Texas you can swing by easily.

On another note, the new TurboTax for 2013 is out.
I use TurboTax to do my taxes each year and have been using it since 1998. It works for me in my tax situation.
I have found a company that sells it as a download i.e., no box, for a very reasonable price. I also get a credit against my purchase. If you are interested in using TurboTax this year here is the new 2013 link.
