Tax preparation--where should I go? - March 31, 2008, 11:41 AM

I will not do my own taxes because I don't have the time or knowledge to do them! So, I have been going to H&R Block for the past three years. I have been somewhat happy with them, but I don't have much to compare with. So, I figured I would ask ya'll!

Please post up your favorite accounting places!!

ummmm you only real bet right now - is going to be H/R Block... IT's March 31st, and as you are supposed to file by April 15 - it's just over two weeks away... Most private folks - CPA's - etc. stop taking new request at the end of March, to deliver by april15th..

I would call and see if H/R Block can take you, this way you have an appointment to get them done..... When I was going thru my divorce, I got some paperwork from my EX - waaaaaaay late an H/R locally was booked around this time... Fortunately, my roomate worked for the H/R Mortgage company and got a co-worker to slide me in and do it....

If you usually get $$ back - it shouldn't be too hard for either h/R and/or private to get yourself an extension and file late.

If you are dealing with just w2's, 1099 from investment income, and a mortgage - TT is a great way to go... I send my to a CPA as I get $$ from a terminal parent for care later in life - so my shit is a pain in the ass...

I aslo believe TT has a option to upload you taxes directly and provides support... if you stuff is easy... It shouldn't be problem...

You're right...I should have qualified my response. My taxes are very straightforward (nothing complicated) so TurboTax works great for me.

to turbotax.com especially if you use it consecutive years and don't have to type everything in again - it carries stuff over for you.

It's pretty good at making sure you don't miss anything too. You can try it out for free, and naysayers aside, you can still take care of some of the more PITA stuff with it.

I like it because its cheap, handles 90% of the issues most people will have, and I don't have to worry about what form for this and what form for that.

Kenneth,

If you have any problems getting in somewhere and have to do it yourself, call me. Turbo Tax is actually pretty good. In fact, the people that design the IRS software run it against turbotax to see if they missed anything. You're a smart guy, so you shouldn't have much of a problem. If you need any help, seriously, call me.

Thanks for all responses. Seems that Turbotax is the way to go, so I will look into it. Thanks for the offer to call you, Dave. I may just have to take you up on it--we can exchange tax and diving ideas at the same time!
