Happy tax day! Do you or someone else do your taxes?

I don't think anyone actually enjoys doing taxes, but how many of you actually do them yourself? (I don't understand them at all, haha, so I certainly don't do my own.)

Hy wife has been doing ours with Turbo Tax for years.

We do them together, using Turbo Tax.

I have done my own most years. We use software too, not Turbo Tax but the other one from H & R Block.

We have an accountant, so for us it's simply dropping papers off and then signing them at the end. It's business taxes or we would do them ourselves.

I wasn't able to file this year but when I am able to I take it to Hewlet Jackson. H&R Block wants to much.

My husband does our taxes. We tried Turbo Tax one year; for us, it took longer than doing it by hand, and we didn't get a single penny more back than when we did it by hand.

So, he just takes a morning and does both Federal and State taxes for us.

Ciao. Ciao.
My parents made me start doing my taxes towards the end of high school (woohoo...), so I've done them ever since then and took over my partner's as well. Ours are pretty simple this year at least, but in the past we've had some multiple employers, states, etc. issues that made it so much more fun...

I do mine! Never anything too complicated, though, since I don't have any dependents.

I do mine with Turbo Tax.
I'm single, no dependents. No business, so it's pretty easy.

I pay someone to do ours, we are married with two kids, go to school, have a business, and have a normal income. I keep all of my receipts and everything is in perfect order for the accountant.

I do our monthly sales tax for the business, but not the yearly ones.

Filled them-out myself for the first time this year, think I'll stick with having someone else fill them out next year.

My partner does, my taxes take like 20 minutes, so it's not too bad, I don't really get anything back.

We have a guy.

We have to file quarterly (business) and it would just be too much of a headache and time-suck to do it ourselves. Not to mention that if WE screwed up, we'd be on the hook for the (potentially huge) penalties (etc), but if our tax preparer made a mistake, it would be on HIM. Moot point so far (knocks on wood), but well worth the cost. Not to mention he probably saves us money by knowing stuff to deduct we didn't know.

I usually do my taxes, but this year my dad offered to have his accountant prepare mine.

We do them together! It took all day, but we got them done. We get a professional every few years just to make sure we aren't messing them up!

Since I'm still living with my parents, my dad does my taxes. He does them for the whole family.

This year, my husband's employer (who happens to also be a chartered accountant) did our taxes for free.

Until I got married, I did my own taxes. But with 2 incomes, working from home, kids etc... I now gladly pay someone else to handle it.

I do my own taxes. Not really much to claim and I can't itemize.

I feel like i am cheating by saying I do them. I plug in the info and TURBO TAX does them. Thank god for that
