Thankful Thursdays-TaxACT

How many of you do your own taxes?

Well, I have been doing my own taxes for about 9 years now. I found that I do as well or better than most tax places. I have even done my own taxes, then went to a tax place and let them do it. That was when I noticed that I had done a great job myself because I did it exactly the way they did. So, I told them to keep their work and I would just file it myself without their help. They wanted to charge me a ton of money to do exactly the same thing I could do myself. Since that day I have done all my taxes as well as my Dad's.

I have been using TaxACT to help me e-file my taxes for the last few years. It is free and they have really helped to find the extra things I may have missed. Just this year they found me an extra $76.00. Hey an extra $1.00 is good in my book, much less $76.00. I never thought to add in Hubby's 401K. (We haven't had a 401K investment in years. )

I then file my state taxes for free online at my sate revenue site.

This is why I am so thankful for TaxACT and any other free e-file tax company out their. I save a lot of cash doing it myself and get the bonus of having them help find credits I may have missed!

What are you thankful for? Let me know! I can't really be the only one thankful for something today!!! Could I?
