I Can Prepare My Own Taxes

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 4:31 am

I used to just take my W2 and other forms to a professional and pay them to prepare my taxes for me, but since I started working from home so I could watch the kids, I started doing them myself. At first, it was difficult for me to understand what forms I needed. Even though I was using a website for help, there were still somethings that it didn’t explain to me and I became lost. I looked for help from the best tax preparation software that money could buy, because I figured the software would be more in depth.

The different types of tax software that I found had some common features, but there were some key things that were left out in some versions. One version had everything that a person would need, but didn’t take into account people working from home or owning their own business, which seemed like a weird thing to omit, especially in this day and age. I think that particular software was out of date and needed someone to add more to it. Another piece of software had what I needed, but was only willing to let me use it if I had a monthly subscription, which I didn’t want. I only wanted to pay one flat fee.

Finally I found the right software that had all of the forms and features for me to fill out everything as someone working from home, while giving me a fair flat price that I would only have to pay once and never again. I can even do my taxes while the kids are sitting right next to me. They don’t understand a bit of it and think it’s just boring math. When they get older, they’ll understand that they have to fill out their taxes just like everyone else.
