Todd Schoonover is going undercover
Well, since I avoided it completely yesterday I got back to work on them today. I decided to check out TurboTax online since they keep advertising it on tv. They let you use them for free up until the time you have to fill out the return, and they actually clued me in on a few things I hadn’t caught on my own including an overpayment that I can get credit for (and will need to check to see if I took advantage of last year). Just doing this online version has saved me 25% of what I had calculated I was going to owe. I’ve got a bit more fine tuning to do though. I haven’t decided if I’m going to pay for TurboTax to produce the forms or if I’m going to write them by hand, but I’m glad I checked them out.
I plan to finish the forms tomorrow and mail them on Tuesday along with my check.
