How To Choose The Best Tax Filing Service

Tax season stresses everyone out. This year, get ahead of the game by studying up on your options for tax-filing services and make sure you pick the one that is best for your lifestyle and income. Here’s WiseDime’s guide to choosing the best service for your personalized tax filing.

Turbo Tax
Probably one of the most well known softwares, Turbo Tax gives you a personalized experience by asking you a series of questions through the software so it can give you the best returns possible. The catch is that, not only is it a more expensive product, it also is all automated, so you’re entrusting your returns to algorithms. It’s a great option for those of us who want quick, simple, and at-home tax filing.

H&R Block
So this is just Turbo Tax with 12,000 different locations available for customer service. If you’re someone who prefers the in-person experience, definitely go with H&R Block, because the availability of face-to-face consultation is way higher.

Tax Slayer
Here’s your free option if you want to get your taxes filed without paying for any software. This website allows for a non-paid filing service which, while not as in depth, can still get the job done if you’re in a time or money crunch.

Tax Act
Cheaper than both Turbo Tax and H&R Block, the basic version of Tax Act is only $31.95, so it makes for a good middle ground where you will pay for a quality service without breaking the bank. It’s good for those who are just starting out and don’t want to dish out the larger fees associated with bigger-name services.

Choose your service wisely, because you’re putting your returns in someone else’s hands. Unless you’re looking to manually fry your brain trying to understand it all yourself, choose one of these options to get the best returns and the personalized experience you deserve.
