Do It Yourself Income Taxes
Turbo Tax Deluxe
The high cost of getting your taxes done by a professional agency are esculating higher and higher. More and more individuals and families are turning to doing their own taxes and avoiding the high cost of preparation and e-filing.
I used H & R Block for many years to get my taxes done and was very pleased. As I was sitting there answering questions and providing documents I was asked for, I began to pay attention to what the agent was really doing. I thought to myself, she's using a software and I can too. I went ahead with the interview and the following year, I purchased Turbo Tax. I did my own little experiment by preparing my taxes using Turbo Tax. No, I had never done taxes before but I was confident that I could. When I finished my taxes, I e-filed them myself. I provided the necessary information on my tax form for direct deposit. In about 10 days, my money from the IRS was in my bank account. I was very proud of myself for this accomplishment and now I do taxes for others too! No one that I done taxes for has ever been audited or had any incorrect information to hold up their taxes. So in short, if I can do my own taxes, so can you. It just takes a little time and to pay attention to what you're doing, just like anything else.
