Taxes Made Easier with Online eFile and Internet Filing
The more we advance with technology the easier it gets to file taxes. The majority of Americans are now filing taxes online as this process has become almost seamless. Although the process has become much easier it is still true that some struggle to understand the ins and outs of the Internet. If you need some help filling out your tax forms online in 2012 here are some links that should be very helpful:
- United Way of Tucson Free Tax Preparation
- Tempe.gov Tax Help
- Arizona Tax Assistance
- Tax Help for Single Mothers
- Tax Breaks for Single Parents
- Tax Help for Seniors and Retirees
- Military Tax Help
These are just a few of the many resources I have found in the last few weeks. I would suggest digging a little bit deeper in the Google search if you need some more assistance. There are plenty of free tax help centers out there so do not feel as if you are alone in this process. There are millions of Americans who struggle with their taxes so you should not be embarrassed.
Online Tax Preparation Companies
As the Internet has continued to expand it comes as no surprise that many tax preparation companies have popped up all over the place. Before accepting that an online tax preparation company is right for you it might be a good idea to check out this list of companies supported by the IRS. There are also some other state websites that will offer lists of companies that offer a free eFile option. If you want to truly complete your due diligence I would suggest looking up some reviews of these websites. Over the last few years it has become very easy to create a website that allows individuals to file taxes. This means that many have come up with quick and easy ways to make money off their customers. You do not want to be part of this as you could end up spending way too much. Some of the more popular, reputable, names in 2012 include Turbo Tax, TaxACT, TaxSlayer, H&R Block, Liberty Tax and 1040.com.
With the help of the IRS.gov website it should not be difficult to find some of the better names that will offer free options. Sometimes it will be worth it to spend a little bit of money on premium products. Although free options are out there some taxpayers could get more money back if they take the advice of tax preparation companies. Unfortunately, this advice is not free but it will often cost much less than $100. If you can get a bigger tax refund check then it might be worth it to consider some of these deluxe or premium editions.
Reducing Stress During Tax Season
One of the easiest ways to reduce stress during the tax season is to file early. This is easier said then done. When there is a deadline for anything, most people will wait until the very last minute. Each and every day that you wait to file your taxes you end up adding to the stress levels. To make matters even worse, you are waiting until everyone else is filing as well. This means accountants, tax preparation software companies and government websites will all be under huge amounts of pressure. Most of these companies and resources will be prepared but it is still a time that can be stressful for everyone.
If you simply get started a little bit early you can greatly reduce these stress levels. By working on a tax return just 10 or 15 minutes a night you will make it much easier to complete the process by April 17th, 2012. If you wait until April 15th to start your taxes you will find that the smallest things can deter you. It may have been the case that your internet connection was solid for the last three months and now it is spotty. Your financial websites have worked great but they are slower when you are looking to file. These are just some of the things that many run in to when they wait until the last minute to file.
