How will you do your taxes?

Today, Geithner testified before the finance committee that the tax returns that resulted in him not paying $43k in taxes were filed on Turbo Tax. Will you file yourself with software this year? Will you still use Turbo Tax if you did before?

  • If he manages get a free pass "nod" from Congress to not pay and claim it was TT's fault, then I have no problem using the software I use. If the IRS comes calling, I will call my lawyer pull the "Geithner" card. Afterall, he very well may be their "boss"

  • He did not use turbo tax. He had accountant.

  • Online, H&R Block. Always do it that way and if you pay attention you won't screw up the way Geithner did. He testified that he did not pay attention.

  • I watched him say it live. Are you saying he lied under oath?

  • Clinton did it...why not. I don't think that oath means a heck of a lot to most politicians (both sides)

  • "Which brand? After saying that any mistakes made were his fault, not the software producer's, Geithner says it was Turbo Tax.

    Grassley asks Geithner if he recalls the software program telling him to pay the payroll taxes.

    "Not to my recollection," Geithner responds."

  • He used the accountant as his excuse last week, this week it's inability to operate Turbo Tax. I guess we wait and see what the excuse is next week.
