A few years ago, when we were buying and selling houses, we used to see an accountant during tax season. Who made some mistakes one year, and then some more the next year. Whether she goofed or not, she still received a hefty fee for her work that made a dent in our return. Accountants use a similar program to the one you can buy for much less from Turbo Tax – my accountant neighbor uses one made by the same company at his practice.
There are different levels based on your exact needs. There is the free federal edition, Deluxe, Premier, Home & Business, and Business. All editions include free federal e-filing.
The Turbo Tax Deluxe Edition fit our requirements this tax year. The program is available for your use right through their website. You’re guided through the completion of your federal and state returns step-by-step. It’s a user-friendly program that takes the headaches and confusion out of doing your taxes with a pen, paper and calculator. Of course the average person is not going to be aware of each and every possible deduction, so it’s nice to have a program that guides you as TurboTax does.
What I thought was pretty nifty, is that you can complete your returns and see where you stand before you even pay for TurboTax, which is a great way to give it a test run and see if this is right for you.
