Every year we have used Turbo Tax software to prepare our taxes and it does an outstanding job. I was intimidated by doing my own taxes at first but one year someone walked me through it using Turbo Tax and I have used it ever since. This software is so easy to use, it walks you through your tax return by asking you yes and no questions and you filling in the blanks, as simple as that. I love the link to online where it downloads the latest tax software and laws to your return before filing, I also love the audit check that it does at the end to ensure you won't be audited which so far after 5 years of using it has proven effective for us. I love how there is a calculator at the top where you can watch your refund grow or shrink as you go on. This past year they also had an added bonus to help you with charitable donations and it takes you right to an easy to use form to plug in what you donated to charity and it calculates how much each item is worth, this was so easy to use and helped boost our refund. I wouldn't think of using any other tax software program and I recommend it to others to use as well.
