The Fun of Finding Tax Forms and Filling Them Out

December 18, 2011 by  Filed under: Taxes 

Tax time is just around the corner. Sooner than one thinks, there will be a mounting pressure to get all of the tax forms gathered up along with that pile of receipts, income statements from employers, and any number of other required materials. Some things, as they say, are inevitable. Some folks might think that death and tax forms are an inescapable fact of life.

The truth, however, is somewhat further away than old wives tales might have one believe. Today, one can easily get around the need for any sort of paper forms used to file their tax reports with the federal and state governments. The opportunities the Internet bring provide for those tasked with their annual government accounting to do so without the need for forms, trips to the Post Office, or even spending time with the family accountant.

How are such feats made possible? Smart people have spent the time to produce incredibly accurate and powerful software which gets hosted online. There are a number of very high quality online tax filing services available today. While the various companies offering these Internet-based services are growing, one thing is sure, you want to have immediate access to all the deductions–even the ones you might never know about otherwise.

This is another great advantage the online tax filing services have over doing it oneself, with paper tax forms. For that matter, even the most up-to-date local tax preparation specialists can only know so much. And what one individual may know, others may not. With the online option, the filer can be assured that all of the latest, most relevant updates to tax laws and codes are going to be taken into account.

Given the growing number of Internet-based tax preparation services, one thing to be on the look out for is some sort of guarantee–a maximum tax refund, if you will. Without this minimum level of assured feeling on the part of the filer, there is very little standing in the way of anyone from putting up a crank site with cursory software that might help one fill in the tax forms correctly.

But having forms done right and knowing, with full faith of a maximum refund pledge, that every bit of tax return will be heading one’s way are two very different scenarios. Like many other products and services we buy now days, having faith we have recourse as consumers can often mean the difference in where we decide to make our purchases.

Depending upon one’s individual circumstances, a tax refund that misses the mark could cost thousands of dollars to the filer. No one relishes the idea of leaving that much money on the table–ever.

Instead of worrying whether or not the tax filing has wrung out every drop of refund money legally due, why not seek out a service which knows all the loop holes and deductions possibly available to the filer? This way, when the bottom-line is eventually reached, there is little doubt that it is in fact, the best scenario one could expect with respect to receiving money back on their income tax filing.

At the end of the day, whether one files their taxes the moment all W-2 income statements have been released, or they wait until the last moment of the last day to mail off their paper tax forms, consider using an online tax filing service this year. Time and money will be saved along with a lot of peace of mind.

Andy West knows that tax forms are never a laughing matter. And when you need one, they are nowhere to be found. Consider doing away with forms all together.
