It's time to get cracking on filing for income tax returns. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is tapping its foot and waiting patiently (till April 16) to double-check and process your returns.

As someone who really likes to “drive my own financial vehicle,” the question of whether or not to pay a professional tax preparer weighs very heavily on my mind this time of year. Just the thought of skidding on all of those slick patches and maneuvering the pot holes of the IRS return itself seems so overwhelming. But, is it throwing money away to pay someone for something I think I might be able to handle myself?
How do I know?
Here’s a tip…most on-line tax preparer websites don’t make you pay their fee until you actually click on “FILE.” Yep, you can go through the whole process for free to see if you can do it yourself. You can even do this on a couple of different sites to compare numbers to make sure you have done everything correctly.
If you are over-whelmed or just keep getting different numbers, Honey you better let a professional take the wheel!
