Where do you go to get your taxes done?


As a lot of you know, I'm fairly new to town and with it being tax time, I need to find someone to do my taxes!

I'm curious, where do you go?  Do you use the traditional ones like H&R Block? Jackson Hewitt? Some one local or are you doing it yourself with Turbo Tax or some other online program?

If you're like me and looking for someone to do your taxes, there's a couple of things you have to check, in no particular order.

  1. The prepare's history
  2. Ask to e-file your return.
  3. Never sign a blank return.
  4. Review your return before signing.
  5. How much are you paying for the service. Is $500 too much??


Below is the Refund Schedule.
