It’s tax season here in the United States. Have you gotten started on your taxes yet? You only have until April 15th. While that seems like it’s a long time period away, I’m always amazed at just how fast it sneaks up on me each year. I’ve been filing my taxes online for many years and let me tell you, if you haven’t started doing your returns online yet, you really should give it a try. Let me tell you why….
I realize that not every aspect of filing taxes is always easy, because there’s a lot to know about taxes, but using an online program like TurboTax makes it so much easier! So easy in fact, that in most cases, you don’t have to have a special person doing your taxes for you. TurboTax will literally walk you through every step, asking you questions as you go, and depending on the answers you give, it will know what forms you are to file. And, it will fill out those forms in the process of answering all of the questions. It’s amazing really! TurboTax believes that you don’t have to be an expert to do your taxes, and I completely agree. If I were an expert, there’s no way I would be able to do this all by myself, year after year after year.
Not only will you get your tax forms submitted faster, you will get your refund back quicker because you don’t have to wait for a paper check. In the past, we have literally gotten our refunds back between 1 and 3 weeks from the date that we filed. We love that feature!
I’m a firm believer in knowing why you do what you do. By doing your own taxes, you have a better understanding of why you need to keep certain receipts, track mileage and report accurately every aspect of income and expenses that you need to report. TurboTax has great educational information within their site, so any time you have a question, you can search the Help topics and they will help you find the answers you’re looking for. Nobody knows you better than you, so who is better to file your taxes?
