Preparation Services/Software - What do you use?


Nov 16, 2012
It's tax season in the United States - and i'm even later than usual getting them done.

What tax service/software do you use to get yours done? I'm trying TurboTax for the first time this year.

I've used Turbo Tax online for many years. I have no complaints. It imports my previous year's tax returns. I own a rental house in a different state than my residence, and I am not self employed so I get a W2 from my employer. It usually takes me about an hour to do my entire tax filing, start to finish.
