Taxes are one of the guaranteed things that occur in our lives. This and death are said to be the only guaranteed things that we can truly count on. Over the years there has been a lot of talk about simplifying the tax code, but it just gets more complicated. Finding the correct method to deal with this complexity is important for everyone.
Some people choose to outsource their tax preparation to a professional. Others may feel that they can do it on their own. Others will be in a position to have a volunteer service do their taxes for them. I feel that the day of paper prepared returns are a thing of the past. There are so many options available now to file electronically. In fact, the government is encouraging people to file their taxes electronically. This only helps them in their review of the returns. The government has set up online sources of tax preparation for those who have very simple returns. Tax preparation software is also available at very low cost. There is nothing wrong with taking advantage of the sources available to you to do your own tax preparation.
VITA,(volunteer income tax assistance) was set up by the government to help those who have very simple returns and are low income. Trained volunteers are available to prepare your returns. They sign the return as a VITA volunteer. They are available at various locations, usually at libraries. You may find this assistance helpful.

Even though there are opportunities available to do your own taxes, you may not feel totally comfortable doing it on your own. Tax professionals are up to date on the tax code and can help you to get deductions that you may not have thought of. Sometimes the tax preparation software is hard to follow if you are not accustomed to accounting terms. If you do choose to use a professional to prepare your taxes, I would encourage you to evaluate their credentials and how much they charge. CPA firms are going to be quite expensive. The national chain tax preparers are very good at what they do but can also be expensive. There are independent tax preparers that can help you. These are certified by the IRS and very knowledgeable in what they do. They are usually CPA’s who have chosen to go independent.
