Jessica Foust, with Top TenREVIEWS, explains how snapping a picture with your smart phone can make filing taxes, a little less painful.
Online tax software and e-filing services make preparing taxes easier and can help you receive your tax return payment faster than the traditional printed form and mail method of filing. Online tax services and tax preparation software such as TurboTax, H&R Block and TaxACT can guide you through the entire filing process and will ask you all the questions necessary to help you maximize the deductions and credits you qualify for.
#1 – TurboTax
TurboTax delivers a stellar performance. They passed all of TopTenREVIEWS tests (even finding our built-in errors) and are up-to-date on new federal tax laws. Additionally, this tax service is the easiest to use and has proven it will get you the largest refund possible; with TurboTax you really can’t go wrong.
#2 – H&R Block
It’s a comprehensive tax service that can provide all levels of tax support. They were one of the few tax services we reviewed that caught all deductions, credits and errors we were looking for to provide the maximum refund amount possible. We found the H&R Block software easy to use, and they were 100% in tune with current tax laws. Additionally, they are the only tax service that offers free audit representation for those that subscribe to their extended service plan.
#3 – TaxACT
It’s accurate, easy to use and offers free federal e-filing. It’s definitely worth trying out. They are up-to-date with current tax changes and they offer free federal filing and inexpensive state e-filing. Additionally, all editions come with free email and audit support. One reason TaxACT falls at #3 is due to its lack of help options. You do have to pay for telephone support if you have any questions.
