Re: Just Asking Taxes

[ Edited ]

A friend who retired from the IRS does ours.  They are complicated due to my business filed 1/4 ly.  He does an excellent job!  Got less than $50.00 back on Federal and State - just right, don't owe, don't way overpay.

Ours are done as soon as all of our paperwork is received.  We have a trusted CPA with whom we've worked for over 20 years prepare them and e-file the federal return. We e-file our state return.

When I was still working for a CPA firm, I did my own and my family's taxes at work.  We were allowed to use our tax system for just those returns.  Saved a lot of money for everyone.


Since then I have not had to file tax returns, so I did my girls' taxes on Turbo Tax.  However, they now do their own online.  I'm not sure my daughter who lives with me has done hers . . . I usually help her with them, so I doubt it.  I will ask her when she gets home from her IV treatment.


I had completely forgotten about them until I saw this post . . . so thank you, @Nuttmeg !!

My accountant filed mine electronically Saturday and I just went to the post office and mailed the checks.

I itemize and take my forms and research to a person who has done my taxes for some 20 years.  I like to have another person's eyes go over my form.


He doesn't charge much, and this year he found something I never would have known about that saved me a lot of money. Once before he has done that, too.  Other times he tells me I've miscalculated and owe a bit.  That's how it goes with itemization.


He's calm.  That's important in tax season.
