ReapTheChaos: I used Liberty tax service once, they had a sign out front advertising returns as low as $25 so I thought what the hell, I'll give them a try. I'm single, one income source along with a small amount of interest from a savings account, all standard deductions, no itemization or any tax write-offs involved, I was in and out in under 15 minutes and they charged me $210. Of course they don't tell you the charge until they're done and already E-Filed. Screw that place.


If you can't fill out an 1040EZ form yourself, you deserve to be taken for $210.

First of all, "as low as" doesn't mean that's what they're going to charge you.

Secondly, if you aren't intelligent enough to fill out a 1040EZ (which is all you needed to do given the above scenario) on your own, well, I feel sorry for you .... The form is free, and it's ONE piece of paper.  All it requires is for you to be able to copy some numbers off your W2, and do some 2nd-grade level subtraction.

Kiler: Tax Boy: Choosing between Jackson Hewett and Liberty Tax is like your choosing a blue latex glove or a green latex glove when your doctor checks your prostate.


I like the third option...the doc with the biggest fingers.


On a more serious note, where is a good place to get your taxes done? This year I've had a baby, bought a house, have my in-laws living in my condo that is fully paid off, and a few other things. I usually do my own taxes but for this year I want to make sure I can get everything back that I can.


An option: If you run into something you don't understand, call the IRS and ask. That's worked well for me in the past, trying to make sense of partnership basis rules.

I gotta be honest.  They're both acting so childish that I really wouldn't want to do business with either one.
