i know all you guys took care of this months ago but bozos like myself like to wait around..

the question i have is about professional review and audit protection services, each for about 30 bucks or so. i don't really think i care about the professional review, as my stuff was pretty straightforward this year, but i'm unsure if audit representation is worth it.

did any of you buy it? what are your thoughts?

thx

ar your taxes at all confusing? was there anything you entered that you were unsure about?

i mean, really, if you aren't making /big/ bucks, you aren't dealing with many accounts, jobs, savings, sales etc.. why bother?

i wouldn't get it man. but that's just me.. i mean.. why would the audit you? and if they did, what could they find?

but if the 30 bucks makes you feel better, hey.

Turbotax is best, Jesse: It automatically updates all IRA information each year, and makes it so easy to roll the return to your Roth accounts.

The IRS form won't let you do that, won't remember data from each year, etc.

The best part of Turbotax: You only have to enter the IRA stuff one time, ever. If you use the IRS method, get ready to that shit evey fucking year.

I don't have to pay taxes, because Carlito is above the law.

Dumb move man, dumb move.
I wouldn't be saying things like that to me because I am still a tough guy and I also have very powerful friends.

i did follow the link... maybe the up the price when it gets close to the deadline?

i know i followed the link because previously it was also charging for the federal, and this time it said free program, and had that different color at the top too.. also, it may be a legacy price if you did it last year, sometimes they do that; raise the rates but extend the old rates to returning customers

the ira thing doesn't play a big deal for me, i don't get enough of a refund to make it a big deal anyways
