I always do our taxes, even the years that I am technically self-employed I have been able to use online software to streamline the process. I pay about $40 each year and the simplicity of doing it that way is well worth it, in my opinion.
But, this year, it will be a bit cheaper. Groupon is running an off for $30 worth of tax preparation from H&R Block for just $15. Their base package for those who don’t itemize is $19.95 – I wouldn’t recommend this as you can do it FREE from websites such as TaxACT and TurboTax. If you itemize, you can use their Deluxe package at $29.95 and with this Groupon it will be just $15.
Because I am again self-employed this year, I will be using the Premium package – regularly $49.95 – and using the Groupon it will be $15 plus $19.95. Not a huge savings, but I had Groupon credit from the purchases some of you have made so that helped out.
