Who Prepares Your Taxes?

If you are married (filing joint)- who does the taxes in your household?
My husband always does ours. In a way I wish I did, because he take SOOOO LONG- but I am glad he insists on doing it- he is very detailed and thinkks things out very well. (and is great with math/numbers- unlike me).

This year we may use a tax prep service. He's having trouble figuring some things out with our recent changes.

  • I went to taxact.com and hubby did them. I started doing them, then he got all anal, ocd and pissed me off so I said fine whatever do it yourself and don't ask for help! LOL He didn't either. He called my friend who told us about the site for help haha!

  • I'm probably not allowed near them- and RIGHTLY so.... if I had anything to do with the taxess I'd probably make some huge mistake and we'd end up owing hundreds of dollars and being audited and who knows what else.

    I just wish my husband moved a little faster.

  • My dh has an uncle who used to do them. On the 3rd year I started doing them and still do.
    I use TurboTax and I like it a lot.
    They have a free version online as well.
    I used to do my own taxes in Australia and am good at math so I do them.
    My dh knows that I do a good job so he stays out of it.

  • We use taxact.com as well. Never had any problems. It was pretty self-explanatory.

  • I use Taxact and do them myself. He wouldn't have half a clue where to start.

  • I do my own, then run it through one of the online programs to double-check.
