DIY Taxes

One of the primary rules of being frugal is TRY TO DO IT YOURSELF FIRST. I just finished doing my own taxes with the help of a J.K. Lasser book. Not only does it give me a MUCH better idea of my finances, it also saved me the HR Etc. fee. It would take a LOT more expensive accountant to finally get the deductions I was able to find!

Each year I buy the cheapest tax preparation software Walmart has, for about $10.00. It takes me through the process, asking me questions so that I don't miss any deductions or income I'm supposed to report. It's really fast and gives me peace of mind. One year, before I used the software, I found out I was entitled to a $180 refund by reading an article in Woman's Day while I was in a lobby waiting for my car to be repaired. If I hadn't happened to pick up that magazine I would never have known. I will stick with the latest software now!

Buy TurboTax for $30.... It simply asks you questions and you answer them.... I've been using this program since it came out and would never go back to the paper method....


Best wishes,
