Why pay some one to do what you can do?
These tax preparers are not professional accountants so they do not know more than you do

I use it every year for my taxes and I have an LLC for side work. Does great. I have had places check my taxes who claim they can "get you a bigger refund." Never once did that ever pan out, without lying on taxes which is NOT a smart plan.

Fact is no company can get you a bigger refund. That is all marketing hype. if you follow the rules, put in all your information correctly and do not leave out deductions, it is what it is at that point. No chain tax service is going to magically get you more money, legally.

Turbo tax does a great job walking you through. The only exception, and I do not know if this is still the case, but several years (2005-2009 ago the online version could not import my Stock Option trading reports for tax purposes. I have since stopped option trading do that isn't a concern for me. Those years I had to buy the Premium ($150) retail software. But was still a FAR cry cheaper than the chain tax companies.

The only value add some can provide is tax advice (CPA) for the following year that can save you money. But once the year is over, it's too late.

Most people that work at the tax places are not accountants much less a CPA. I have found turbotax to work better because having my tax information and social security number in a file that some one I do not know can access is very uncomfortable.

And for every ones information, leading edge does not have a CPA or accountant on staff. All they are doing is filling in the blanks for you and charging you hundreds of dollars.

Use Turbotax and you will not have to worry about some fly by night business that will not be there after tax season using your social security number to steal your identity.

I use it every year. Its simple. Just copy whats on your W-2 into the boxes, and answer a few easy questions. I was done in 30 mins.(It remembers my answers from last year as far as who I claimed and my address and socials so that of course helped.) Getting 6000 back this year. Paid only 20 to E-file state. That would have been free too if I had the State just send a check. If I went to H&R block or some place they would have probably taken at least $600 to file. They base it on what you get back. My stupid kids mom talked me into using them one year even though I know how to do it myself.$500 wasted. Going to a tax preparer is really only for people who have to pay or have crazy different deductions. If you have a couple of W-2s and rent an apartment then Turbo Tax is what you should do. Otherwise dont pay more than $50 to get them done or youre getting ripped off.

Intuit, the company that produces Turbotax stands behind their product.
Brandon Williams and leading edge will take your money and run, they are closing on April 16th and leaving the state of Kentucky
