Do you file your own taxes?
« on: December 27, 2018, 03:35:31 pm »
I do. Some of these tax preparation places charge so much. In the past I have filed taxes for friends to save them money too.

My wife is a CPA and she takes care of our taxes. I at least know the person doing the taxes has a stake in getting them right.

I do.  The amount I get back is not enough to pay someone else to do them.

We used an accountant since along time ago. My husband taxes is tricky because its commission base and  he got a gas deduction. Its better to be safe and right to file our taxes.

Yes.  The tax preparing places are out for the government not for you the tax payer. Besides that it is not that hard. just use turbo tax or something like that and answer the questions. Why pay half your refund to get somebody to do that for you.

Yes, I have filed my own taxes.  A CPA did them when I worked with him but since then I have done them myself.  I have used TurboTax in years past.  I now use a free software.
Have a wonderful day!

My husband does ours and then I go over them before  sending them off to make sure he has not  missed any deductions or forget to  add anything he should have. 2 heads are better then one. When it comes to the taxes.  When  we first got married he  forgot to add in some stocks  we sold. IRS sent a letter saying  we owed $1600.00. What  shock so I made  payments on it. Then after we paid it all in when got a check  from them saying we had paid  $900.00 too much. So  he was wrong and they were wrong. Was nice to get that back. So we do a lot of double checking any more.

I don't do the taxes. However, my husband does ours on the computer. Glad he knows how to do this because it saves us some money.
