April 15th is Coming!
Do you find the thought of taxes to be taxing on your anxiety levels? Take a deep breath!!!
Back in the early pre-computer days I was able to fill out the forms just fine using a calculator with a pen and forms. Not a whole lot has changed in the process since then and you may not believe this but not every taxpayer even has a computer and yet they don’t feel the need to rush out and pay some insane dollars to a tax preparer to plug in the same figures into their computer software to get some magical number.
My wife and I have been using FreeTaxUSA online for several years now, even after comparing the figures to what we saw after purchasing Turbo Tax. We’ve since been filing free online and getting the direct deposits within about 10 days.
We use our local State and City tax websites, FREE, in the same way. Neither of us are accountants.
The IRS.Gov web site shares resources for Free File options for tax payers. Have you looked at them? The process is quite easy to file your own, even with returns that require itemizing over the standard deductions.
It’s definitely your choice and based on your comfort level to decide whether to pay or do-it-yourself. But, I just want you to know that you have options. And, the IRS wants you to know that also…
