Hello. I have done my own taxes by paper method for 30 years except for 4-5 times when new items warranted a professional. They have forced me out of paper as it now takes weeks or months to get your return back. What tax programs/online filling companies have you used and been successful? Also which level? Deluxe, premium, etc.? Married with both working full time, dependent children, side farm income. Thanks.

Turbo tax here too. We have regular income, investments, two businesses, and royalty income (which is more of a PITA than it's worth for the tiny royalty). I had an accountant handle it for us for 2 years. Maybe I had the wrong guy but he never did any magic to reduce my tax burden. I went to Turbo Tax and have been using it for several years. If my tax situation changes, I may seek guidance again but right now I'm satisfied.

I prefer someone to fall back on when the IRS comes knocking. Then again we get back over $10K every year, so I donít mind paying for someoneís services. Did have a guy one year that scared me when he opened a drawer and said we have receipts for everything from apples to uziís, lol!

Been using h&r block. My former tax preparer used it but after covid I had to scramble so ended up doing it myself.

I used Turbo Tax for many years till I ran into a really complicated tax situation in 2014. Went to H&R Block and had them figure it out and also got their "Peace of Mind" for $35. Wound up being the best $35 I ever spent when my taxes got even more complicated by Obama Care that I used for 4 months that year. My local H&R Block person handled the whole thing with care and professional expertise.

Yeah, I pay a little more every year for their service but it is worth every penny in my mind.

Used Turbo Tax for years but became concerned I may be missing something. Went to local H&R Block and the guy sat in front of his computer and asked me all the same questions Turbo Tax did. Back to doing it myself again.

I use turbo tax. Very easy to do, even a technologically illiterate country kid like me can figure it out

I work with a secretary that works for a tax preparer in the evenings during tax season. She uses an online software exactly like TurboTax that asks the same questions. She has used TurboTax for her own taxes and suspects the software is really TurboTax under a different name rebranded for mom and pop accounting offices.

I have used Turbo Tax Premier for 30 some years. I used their small commercial program called Pro Basic when I filed for others. We have been e-filing for 15 years or so. If you have questions they have a very high quality on line help service that one can use for any of the forms etc.

Wouldnít trust em to go to bat/court on my behalf.
I needed that badly a few years ago when audited. And our local preparer was amazing.

Free tax usa is just that, a free program for federal and state taxes. Rio ng fee is small and everyone is charging for that. I do taxes for a few friends and I use HR Block or freetaxusa. All are easy if you can read and follow directions.


Wish I had more time to trap....

I have used TurboTax for at least ten years. Over the years my taxes have gotten more complicated but I still trust it. I like it for federal but not too thrilled with how it does state. I always get a different result if I file directly through the state's website, but maybe that's because TurboTax knows more than I do. It might be faster just go to somewhere as it does typically take me a couple to a few hours.

I went to Jackson Hewitt one time and was not impressed at all. The girl who did mine was a seasonal employee who was not an accountant and I felt like I knew more than she did.

Started using Turbo tax a few years ago when my tax guy was going through health problems, they walk you by the hand step by step, in answer to the OP you can buy the extra help options but I never do, last year we had 26 singe side pages of tax return, state and federal.

Stopped using turbo tax years ago. We weren't getting much. my wife used the IRS software before we met she swore by it. We compared the 2 and turbo tax gave us more. After a couple years we decided to compare both of those programs against others like hr block. Hr block won. One year she decided to use a local person and we got the most ever.

Go through the hassel of doing them with a few versions to compare. It costs you time since they don't charge until you file.
