That title basically sums it up. TaxSlayer.com’s contest only allows you a minute and the list of information that it’s required you include is so long, I wasn’t sure how to fit it all in. Then I decided a press conference. Which also gave me a chance to set up this awesome podium that I’m so proud of.
Who should I use to file my taxes?
Complex question! Here comes the simple answer –
If your tax situation is relatively simple, you may be able to file your taxes on your own using tax software or online tax filing services. Many popular options include TurboTax, H&R Block, and TaxAct. (if you have one job, one paycheck, and a simple home ownership or rental situation, this is probably for you!)
If your tax situation is more complex, such as if you have multiple sources of income or have recently started a business, you may want to consider hiring a professional tax preparer, such as a certified public accountant (CPA) or an enrolled agent (EA).
When choosing a tax preparer, be sure to research their qualifications and experience, and consider asking for referrals from friends or colleagues. It’s also important to ensure that the tax preparer you choose is licensed and registered with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
Ultimately, the most important thing is to ensure that your taxes are filed accurately and on time.

Is it free to file your taxes online?
Often – YES!
For many taxpayers, it is possible to file their taxes online for free. The IRS offers a Free File program that allows taxpayers to use free online tax preparation software if their adjusted gross income (AGI) is below a certain threshold (currently $73,000 for tax year 2021). Additionally, many online tax preparation services offer free versions of their software for simple tax returns, although there may be fees for more complex tax situations or additional services such as audit support or tax advice. It’s important to read the terms and conditions carefully to understand any potential fees before starting to file your taxes online.
When do I need to file an income tax return?
The deadline for filing your federal income tax return is usually April 15th of each year. However, the deadline may be extended to the following business day if April 15th falls on a weekend or holiday. Additionally, you may be eligible for an automatic extension of the deadline until October 15th if you file Form 4868 with the IRS by the original due date. It’s important to note that the deadline to file your state income tax return may be different than the federal deadline, and some states may have different extension deadlines as well. You should check with your state’s tax agency or a tax professional to confirm the specific deadlines that apply to your situation. Keep in mind that failing to file your tax return by the deadline can result in penalties and interest charges.
Should I file my income tax return online?
YES! And it’s easy. Paper sucks.
Filing your income tax return online can be a convenient and efficient option for many taxpayers. When you file your taxes online, you can usually complete the process quickly and easily, and the software or online tax preparation service will guide you through the process and help you avoid errors. Additionally, filing online can help you get your refund faster, as the IRS typically processes electronic returns more quickly than paper returns.
However, if you have a complex tax situation or if you’re not comfortable with technology, you may want to consider hiring a tax professional to prepare and file your return for you. It’s important to note that when you file your taxes online, you should take steps to protect your personal and financial information, such as using a secure internet connection and choosing a reputable online tax preparation service or software. Overall, whether you choose to file your taxes online or not depends on your personal preference, the complexity of your tax situation, and your comfort level with technology.
