Taxes!

I attempted to do them myself this year with TurboTax...Let's just say it wasn't my favorite. By the time we purchased the software ($35) and the additional state we needed (Utah) ($35) and the cost for e-filing ($18 x 2) it totaled $106...PLUS my whole day of frustration and no time to play with Jaxon AND the worry of wondering whether I did them correctly, I would rather have paid the $218 we paid last year at TaxQue! I heard it was the easy, cheap way to go. I don't know; maybe it's my pregnant brain that's making it worse than it really is, but I don't think I wanna do that again next year! And the worst part is...we owe! We aren't even getting a return!

At least it's over! :)

Ah, taxes! I've had so many people try to convince me to do them myself, but it is SO much easier to just go to someone. Our tax guy only charges about $100 to do it, and he gets us back money every year, even in years when I don't think anything will come back! And it takes the burden off you! We still need to do ours...

yes, those days are still ahead for us. luckily we aren't using turbotax like we usually do. Hopefully? less work for me. Oh yeah- you can borrow my stamps anytime or come over & use them. I got the set from beaducation.com.

I have a great tax lady... she only costs us about a hundred bucks! Let me know if you want her number. She lives in Coolidge and has been doing it for years. AWESOME! Plus... no headaches!

Eh taxes! I hate taxes. I was thinking about doing them with Turbo tax this year but maybe I will reconsider. Last year we paid about 125 with Jackson Hewitt and I thought that was high! Two kids next year equal two tax credits!

I can't believe you owe! I know i prob couldn't do it but Jake says its the best way to go. If you think it would help you could ask him for pointers. I don't do well with the financial stuff so... I'm no help but i do know that i would be even worse if i was pregnant. I'm proud of you for doing it though. Go Mommy!
