Do you get your taxes done on-post?

I haven't done it because it always looks like there are a kajillion people there every single day.  I usually do mine online with Turbotax, but I have some special tax situations this year.  I am considering getting them done for free on-post, but I don't know if it is worth the hassle.  Is it hard to get them done on-post?  Do you have to wait forever?

We did ours for free through H&R Block last year, not sure if we will do that again or go on-post.

no, i always do them myself with taxact online.  you can get a free version, which is just fine for us, since we don't have a lot of investments or deductions to claim.  you can also file them electronically (i can't remember which one costs money to file, but it's only like $10).  we always get our returns really quickly doing it that way.  even faster than people who file around the same time as us, but do it on base.

no way!! I use a certified CPA and he has 30 years experience doing taxes.

we have some complicated tax issues and I own my own business, I have never trusted places like H and R block and VITA.
