Once again as every year, dreaded tax season is upon us. Sure, we all enjoy receiving our returns - who couldn't use the extra cash. It's the actual filing part that nobody likes doing but has to do.

We have always brought our taxes in to have them done. Now, it has happened that human error occurred and we ended up owing money we should have been receiving so it really makes you question what you are paying for with the expensive fees that come with having a business such as these your paper work for you. They always say if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself!

We have talked it over time and time again, maybe doing it ourselves isn't such a bad idea. There are a wide variety of tax programs available to buy or even do your taxes right online.
