Because my husband and I are self-employed our taxes can be a little more complicated than normal. We have always had our accountant do our taxes every year at a cost of around $350. Unfortunately, he had a serious motorcycle accident last summer and has not returned to his job. We could have used his replacement, but I decided to see if I could use an online tax preparation service to do our taxes this year. I decided on Turbo Tax Home & Business online.
Turbo Tax made my tax preparation so easy! As I went along I was asked questions that determined what forms needed to be completed and then it filled in the correct areas with the numbers I provided. It couldn't have been easier! I didn't have to pay until I was finished and ready to review and print the return. That made it easy for me to see how the program worked and if I felt comfortable with it before I made the decision to buy it.
I was charged only $79.82 with tax! That is a savings of over $270 from what our accountant would have charged. I was able to E-file for free and had my refund direct deposited within 8 days!
