There are so many different options when it comes to tax software, and it can be very confusing to figure out which is best. What makes it even more confusing is that many of the companies “hide” the real cost of their software. You see, most companies are simply advertising the “Federal Return” price, and not […]
All About Taxes
The only sure things in life are death and taxes, and any blog relating to investing and personal finance will definitely talk about taxes. So, here are all your tax articles in one place.
TaxHawk 2017 made some great improvements to their software, and we recommend them for small business owners and side hustlers.
Online Taxes (or OLT.com) is a barebones tax preparation software that we don’t recommend. We’ve found it buggy and difficult to use.
H&R Block 2017 has lowered their prices, and they have the best option for people who are able to file their taxes for free.
TaxAct Online 2017 disappoints this year with no major improvements, and no real value to new users. As such, only repeat customers should consider it.
TurboTax 2017 is one of the easiest to use tax return software options, and it’s pricing makes it the best for most tax filers.
A chart and schedule that shows you when you can expect your tax refund in 2017. Also, how to check the status of your refund.
Every individual must pay his or hers taxes every year. The vast majority of people know this, but the truth is that many of them are facing tax issues year after year. If you are in a situation like this, you should know that there are many tax relief solutions that can help you. According […]
Tax season flew by quickly didn’t it ? Let’s just say you completely forgot that Tax Day was April 18 this year and you are late with filing your tax returns. Are you in a hopeless hole ? What can you do ? If you caught onto your lateness before April 18, you could file […]
As you start working and making money, you are supporting yourself through your life and education. It’s inevitable, and everyone goes through it. But it does look different for everyone. You may be living with your parents, or your parents may be paying for college. Or your parents may be giving you money to help […]
Tax day is just around the corner. And while 83% of filers get refunds according to the IRS, so people do owe. What do you do if you find out that you still owe a large chunk of money to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS)? And what happens if you can’t afford to pay your […]
It’s true. You can file your taxes until Tuesday April 18 this year. (Don’t forget to check out all these Tax Day Freebies too so you don’t get stressed out by the mere fact that it’s Tax Day!). So while you don’t have a whole lot of time, you do have enough time to get yourself […]
There is an old saying that starts off like this, “There are two things in this life no human being can avoid”. Not surprisingly, taxes happen to be one of those things. No matter what you do or who you are, you have to report your taxes, file the paperwork that comes along with it, pay […]
Tax filing season may be the single best argument for living a life of simplicity. The Federal Tax code is arcane, but state tax codes put it to shame. Answering a question as simple as, “Where do I file my state income tax returns?” becomes a confusing labyrinth that leaves the average filer casting about […]
There seems to be a common theme with the people around me who receive a large income tax refund: the money starts burning a hole in their pocket! When this happens, the money that was supposed to help improve their financial life turns into an inexpensive new car (or an expensive one with monthly payments), […]
This post is brought to you by CJ Affiliate’s VIP Content Service. Thank you H&R Block for sponsoring this post. While this was a sponsored opportunity from H&R Block, all content and opinions expressed here are my own. Long gone are the days of just a W-2 and filling out a simple 1040EZ. Today’s tax […]
For many people, tax time is one of the most complicated times of the year. April 15 is a busy time for accountants and tax preparers, but it’s also a stressful time for most people. If you’re a student, you might not know what to do – especially if you have scholarships and grants. Do […]
The first time I ever heard of MLPs was from my Uncle Jeff. Imagine an enormous lumberjack, with a Santa Claus beard and a penchant for stretching the truth. “You know who’s really getting rich up there in Williston? It ain’t them truck drivers. It’s them MLPs. They’re earning all this money without paying any […]
Here’s our Jackson Hewitt Tax Software review, where we found they offer a solid interface at competitive prices.
Frequent traders use a combination of research, current events and technical analysis to buy and sell stocks and options. This approach to investing sometimes yields Alpha (over-performance relative to a benchmark), but it always yields more complicated tax filing. If you buy and sell financial positions, you need to stay organized to avoid an IRS […]
We look at Credit Karma Tax Software, which promises free tax filing. It actually turned out to be a great product, but not for everyone.
1040.com is not a good choice for complex tax filers, and the 1040.com tax software is more expensive than other options. Maybe next year…
