Is anyone paying to get taxes done with last paystub?

My co-worker is paying 200 bucks to get her taxes done early with her last paystub...shes also paying to get the money back within a 48 hour period! I think shes using the money to go on vacation back home to FL at the end of the month..but i dont get enough back to want to pay that much!!! Although i entered everything i could into turbo tax..and im honestly excited about tax time this year!!! ill be able to pay off a few things, and for once have a little bit of fun with some money!!! YAY!

  • I go onto and with all the fees for processing and e-filing to get it quick it's 100. This will be atleast the third year I'm using it.

  • I would never pay someone to do my taxes. I have used for the last several years.

  • I use Tax Act also. I can file electronically and have it direct deposited for a small fee. I got mine in less than a week last year. Pretty easy program to use it is idiot proof.

  • How does tax work?

  • First of all, using a paystub is a very bad idea! Inevitably there are differences between paystubs and the W2. Secondly, there are so many sites now that the IRS has approved where you can do you own taxes online - and most for FREE - that I would never pay that kind of money to file my taxes. Now granted, I have been doing my own taxes for years; as well as most of my family members'. But it you go to the IRS site, you can filter through the list of online filers to see which best suits your comfort level. They also process very quickly. If you chose one with a fee, it's like maybe $10.
