For these individuals, tax filing help can come from a couple of sources. One option is going to a tax preparer and having him/her prepare your tax return. This may appear to be the easiest way out of your dilemma; however, the taxpayer is ultimately responsible for the return. Plus, the high fees can be a turn-off.
Do you still take your tax records to a CPA or other tax professional for a simple return? Each year, millions of taxpayers are taking advantage of free tax filing online at one of the online tax filing firms.
Cost and convenience are the two major reasons for this change. Having a tax professional prepare even a simple return without itemizing, can cost several hundred dollars. Traveling to and from a tax professional can be very inconvenient as compared to doing your taxes online from the comfort of your home.

Finally a Solution to the Question – Is Online Tax Filing Really For Me?
