Picks for DOS

The state of DOS is like a Monty Python skit; the only question is which skit? - the Bring Out Your Dead skit where DOS programs keep popping up saying "I'm not dead!" or the Dead Parrot skit where one last voice keeps claiming that DOS isn't really dead, when it very obviously has breathed its last.

Well, DOS is not quite dead yet. In fact, our first DOS Pick is an income tax program, which is one more shareware income tax program than we've found for Windows.

is an income tax preparation program.
It can print an IRS approved tax return on either a laser or dot matrix printer. Share-TAX/1040 displays the forms on the screen and all you have to do is enter the raw numbers.
