  • Getting Income Tax Return Preparation for FREE

    I do not feel like paying H&R Block to do my returns this year, nor to anybody else since I want to save the bucks because I make a low income, does anyone know where can I get tax preparation for free?

      Is your situation overly complex that you could not just do it yourself?

        I was thinking of doing them myself, but I reside in NJ, but my employer is from NY, I will be for the the first time filing 'married filing separately'... I might just do them myself... I was considering that option..

          Have you ever tried TurboTax or other software like it? I too live in NJ and work in NY, and software makes things a breeze (and I must confess that I actually like doing the tax returns).

                Hey aguila, I have been using turbotax to do and file my taxes but it cost around $40 for both federal and local. Anyway one of my co-workers told me that you can file thru the IRS website and it is not only alot quicker it is cheaper...so I will probably be trying that this year

                  I want to look into the IRS website thingie too. I tried turbo tax one year and there was some things it would not allow me to itemize that were legal... I ended up doing it all and just inputting it on final page so that I could send it electronically. H & R Block messed me up one year too so now I do it myself. The book gives thorough directions. I only have to file federal so I don't know if the others are a lot more complicated or not.

                          I am looking for someone to cut my hair. Where can I go to have it done professionally and also I don't want to pay anything?

                          I am looking to have an operation.....I don't want to pay anything, but I want it done by someone who knows what they are doing and will do it correctly.

                            Nobody asked you to read this thread..., so why don't you save your ironic comments/questions? if you are not going to add anything positive or to a thread why would you bother to post
                            s-u-p-i-d and ironic analogies? Get a life.

                              My husband got a bad experience with e-filing. I think it must be on same cases. But I would strongly suggest that anyone who filed with it try to call IRS within few months after that to ensure that they process it.

                              What happened to my husband is that that his e-filing for year 2001 & 2002 was stopped because they 'said' that his addressed changed from 2001 and 2002 which he was in Florida and then to Korea. So they worried it was a fraud and just stop the filing without even bother to send a notice. We found this when we wanted to gather income tax returns for the last 3 years.

                              Its indeed the best and free hassle to file, but make sure to double check the results after few months.
