I know most people would hold off in doing their taxes until April or so, but for myself I pretty much have to do it early or else it will create a major headache down the road. For the most part I have used commercial software programs to do my taxes as it makes everything so much easier I find anyways.
I was actually debating if I dared to do it manually this year. Last year I used Quicktax Incorporated and it wasnâ€™t exactly the best piece of software I found. As well, factor in that the product costs a little over $150 on average it kind of makes me want to look for alternatives.
I did notice that for personal use H&R block seems to have its own software available for the public this year. Wonder how that one is. While I canâ€™t actually submit anything as I have yet to receive any of those government codes to register a return, it never hurts just to have everything prepared so that once it comes all you have to do is submit it.
