Tax time can mean a lot of different of things to a variety of people. For Colby and I, we have to compile large piles of 1099 forms from the year as self-employed freelancers, as well as all the other bits and pieces of information needed to file. In fact, we normally use TurboTax to file our taxes, but, after purchasing a new home last year, we needed additional tax advice.
Personalized Tax Advice and Answers
This year, TurboTax introduced TurboTax Live, a new tax preparation experience that combines the ease of use and technology of TurboTax with an extensive virtual network of credentialed tax experts to deliver assisted tax preparation to living rooms nationwide, on demand. This means for people like us – who could use a little extra help filing our income taxes – there is help available! The best part?
