How much do you pay to get your taxes done?

I am just wondering how much different companies charge to do taxes. I know H&R Block charges way too much, so for the past year I have done my own through Tax Cut free file and it is super easy. How much do you usually pay?

  • I use H&R Block online. It really is easy to do it yourself. It walks you through every step.

  • Nothing, I file them myself. Takes all of 5 minutes!

  • I would file them myself but we have so many forms, such as student loans, stocks, savings, it all gets confusing.

  • Nada. I've been doing ours myself for years. We got the W2 in the mail Saturday, had them filed that evening, should have my refund within 10 days.

  • I do it myself. I'm an accountant, so I have access to all of our resources. For a client our minimium is $500. But we also don't typically have clients how just have W-2s and some interest. Most of them have companies, investments, flow through, etc.

  • I think the last time I had someone do them for me was about $80 or so. We had some SE income and 1099's as well as some itemized things, but it wasn't that hard. THe last two years, I have only 1 W2 and its so easy so I just file online.
