As much of a headache hearing the words, “It’s Tax season” brings, there is an easy, safe and guaranteed way to file online.
No more waiting in line at the Post Office at midnight April 15th. No more sweating and cursing as you wait in the overcrowded office of your tax preparer.
Turbo Tax is here for you…
I have been loyal user since 2005 and find it easy and great to use.
After you set up your account with them, you can use this same account every year without having to re-sign up.
Once you have received all of your tax information from work, banks and any other financial ventures you may have, go to Turbo Tax and begin the online filing process from the comfort of your living room (or wherever you have your computer).
Instead of trying to figure all of the amounts you have to insert, Turbo Tax takes you step-by-step, line-by-line through your tax information (1099’s, 1040’s etc.). Simply take each document individually and enter the requested information when asked. Turbo Tax will put it in its proper place and will even show you page-by-page what your tax refund or debt will be.
No matter how many jobs you have, or even if they are in different states or whether one is a 1099 and the other is a 1040EZ, Turbo Tax makes filing a synch.
And they even guarantee their services.
They offer free filing for federal taxes and a fee if you choose to co-file your state taxes.
If in filing and your refund/debt is different from what was quoted, they will refund you (according to their rules, of course). It pays to read fully the site before using it for your own sanity and safety.
Unlike paper filing via USPS, waiting anywhere from six to eight weeks (or longer) to get your “check in the mail”; or waiting for them to directly deposit your funds into your account, Turbo Tax will get you your refund in your account within eight (business) days when you eFile.
I got my last year’s refund in about five or six days.
You can even do your business taxes with Turbo Tax with the same assurances.
And if you are of the charitable nature, Turbo Tax will make sure you get the most for your donations. You don’t have to figure out the value of your donated clothing, furniture or other tangible items. A big help if you forgot what an item may have cost, or just don’t know its value at the time you donated it.
With the current economic situation, particularly as it pertains to health care and insurance, knowing what to file and how much to file, Turbo Tax makes is easy on you to find the correct medical expenses you may qualify for.
What if you have a “life changing event”: you got married, divorced; had a baby or got a new home? How do you figure in the differences?
You don’t. Turbo Tax does. By asking some questions, it will decipher your financial status and make the necessary adjustments to make sure you get the best and biggest refund due you.
Because we live in the “Age of Technology”, many companies have assigned numbers on various tax sites that make your filing session quicker and easier. By simply typing in the assigned number, Turbo Tax will “gather” all related information and deposit it onto the online application. This is great if you are the type who likes to wait until the last possible minute to file. Instead of rifling through all of your work paperwork, simply input pertinent numbers and it does the rest.
And should you find yourself with questions, there is a LIVE online community of experts ready and willing to help you anytime you need it.
They think of everything you can’t think of when dealing with the IRS. Even the dreaded audits.
If you are being audited, they are there to help.
With this and so much more available to you at your fingertips, why wouldn’t you use an online filing service?
And moreover, why not use Turbo Tax?
