Easy, huh? What are you doing later?





I am an accountant and I don't do personal taxes (only mine). I don't use any software. (I probably should), but I have "things" I need to work out before it goes on paper.

Easy, flames, checkered flags and Chevy bowties. The only fault I can find is that you live in Ohio.

When I took my companies from Sole Prop to S corps, a whole new can o' worms opened up, I pay my accountant plenty to keep it strait, and he uses TT. Ya know, payroll taxes are a pain, next time, every one is a sub and gets 1099!

We do!
The forms ask how much we made last yr, then we send that in.

I was told that the only way it could be done electronically was by a licensed facility (ie H&R Block). I hope that's not true but I'm interested to see what is said. If I can do my own via TT and file electronically, I'm saving myself $275 this year (which is why H&R charged us last year).
