Many of you including myself love doing your own taxes, in fact we thrive on it. It gives us a sense of accomplishment knowing we did our best to get the maximum refund we possibly could at a cheaper cost. Now, if a Certified Public Accountant does your taxes, that’s okay too. Not everyone enjoys my enthusiasm during tax time.
If you’re looking for an easy and inexpensive way to file your taxes, you’re in luck. That’s because Unitus teams up with our friends at TurboTax® to offer credit union members a discounted rate on tax preparation software. This year you can save up to $15 on TurboTax Federal products!
Some of the benefits of using TurboTax include:
- Translating your taxes into simple questions about your life and puts everything in the right forms for you so you can organize and complete your taxes easily.
- Automatically importing your information from your W-2 tax form so your information is entered quickly and correctly.
- Searching over 350 deductions and credits so you won’t miss a thing.
- Running error checks as you go, with a final review to help make sure your taxes are done right.
You better get started now, Tax Day (April 18) will be here before you know it!
If you do happen to come out with a refund this year, consider saving it. Next month is America Saves Week and what better way to kick off 2016 than with a healthy contribution to your emergency fund, or maybe your child’s education…you decide.
