Ok, so you admit you're not as mathematically gifted as my 7th grader who aced the ACT last year. Hi, my name is Lea Ann, and I'm an idiot. AND, you really hate filling out forms like moi. AND you really like the idea of a giant in the industry backing you up if the IRS decides your taxes were not prepared correctly. (Hey, not my fault. Talk to the hand, IRS. H&R Block did my taxes.) Then, you're in luck. You can fill out and file your federal income tax return thru H&R Block. As a young art director decades ago, I always did my taxes at H&R Block. Or, I should say I thanked them profusely when THEY did my taxes, every year.
You ARE a glutton for punishment you say? Then you want the totally free form direct from the IRS that I told you about last year here.
Me? I'm stickin' with my lovely and talented CPA SuperHero Randall. He is worth every penny, and hey, he's tax deductible. Some people achieve peace of mind from being able to say they know how to do just about anything. Me? I follow the mantra: the less I know, the more empty space in my head for happy thoughts. I absolutely do not need to know how to do my taxes, change my oil, set up a wireless network, use Excel, program the DVR, make my own laundry soap, or grout the tub. Now, if we could only remove some of that useless information that IS in my head (like Calculus, Organic Chemistry, and Wheat Weaving) I feel certain I could achieve a zen-like state.
Pay it forward, people!
