Whichever method of tax preparation you choose, know that it’s important to get your taxes done. If you have a single source of income and no dependents, then your taxes might be simple enough to complete on your own. If you’ve never “done” your taxes before, maybe a face to face session with a professional is right for you.
If you need more help, though, you’re not alone.
Many public libraries offer classes and other kinds of tax preparation assistance. There’s also tons of help online: Tax preparation companies like H&R Block and Turbo Tax put plenty of information and advice on their sites. And although it’s not as exciting a read as Fifty Shades of Grey, the IRS website does have all the tax information you could ever desire.
Finally, don’t forget: April 18 is the big day. Good luck and happy taxing!
