Several years back, my husband and I went to H&R Block to get our taxes done. We dutifully brought our paperwork and sat in front of a guy in his sixties. He asked us question after question - prompted by the computer screen in front of him. The process was long - mundane - and there were a few questions that we couldn't answer because we had forgotten this receipt or that document.
Then, we (okay, fine...my husband...he's really the Tax Guy around here) discovered TurboTax. And we've been trying to persuade our friends to switch over ever since.
It's Simple. Easy. Affordable. Convenient. Perfect for Busy Parents.
And TurboTax guarantees that you'll get your biggest possible tax refund.
This is how wonderful it is: You sit down at your computer and answer questions in your timeframe (the process is streamlined and organized). You can even collect the necessary paperwork as you go.
Oops! The baby is crying or dinner needs to be made or your daughter's basketball game starts in five minutes! No problem! Just save it and come back later. No rush, no hassle.
As you go, your "totals" will adjust so that you know how much you owe...or how much you will be refunded. And TurboTax even "flags" any potential problems.
Best of all, if you use TurboTax once, filing your taxes in subsequent years is even easier because the program will automatically import your tax info from the previous year. Sweet!
Still worried it will be confusing? You can live chat with a TurboTax rep 24/7 or call the FREE hotline.
It's easy-peasy. Try it once and you'll be a "convert" forever. Well, at least until you become a billionaire. Then, you might want to hire a pro...
