Are you filing your taxes yourself this year?
I have always prepared my own taxes each year. I have used TurboTax every single year.
This software has been extremely helpful and straightforward to use.
I have considered using TurboTax's competitor, TaxCut (by H&R Block), but I always back out because TurboTax is designed to automatically transfer all of last year's information over to this year's return.
(I wonder if TaxCut can auto transfer a return put together using TurboTax?)
If you have a very simple tax return and plan on using 1040EZ, TurboTax provides their software and one federal tax filing for FREE!
Otherwise, there is a cost for the software, but it is reasonably priced for such a good software package.
I've never had a problem with a filing I have made with TurboTax.
I am sure it is the same for TaxCut software, but I have not used the product.
By the way, I usually look at the Staples or Office Depot sales ads this time of year before purchasing my TurboTax software. Usually, they will have a special – something like "Buy TurboTax and get a $10 gift card" deal. I like that! Last year, I ended up buying my software from Best Buy, and it came with a free wireless mouse. It is a great mouse! It was backordered and took over two months to get it, but they did ship it to me!
