This year I filed my taxes for the first time. I asked around for recommendations and in the end decided on Turbotax. This application is simple, user friendly and helps you get the biggest tax return even if you know which exceptions can apply to you.
Reasons I would recommend using Turbotax
Save time to prepare taxes.
Help ensure data is entered accurately on tax return.
Make life easier during tax time.
There are 4 options available:
- Deluxe -Paid,
- Premier -Paid (Investments & Rental Property)
- for Self employed- Paid.
Depending on your specific situation Turbotax would suggest free/paid option.
If you are going to use the paid Deluxe option I would recommend to do it through Ebates. It will not only give you $20 discount but also up to 7,5% cash back on the amount you will pay. This way you will get even more:)
If you decide to file electronically, there will be an information that you can expect money transferred to your account within 3 weeks.
