So I went to Turbo Tax and imported all my shit (thank you based TurboTax) and lo and behold it said the complete opposite: that I would be getting a couple Gs back (still doesn't sound right and I haven't put in my dividend income or cap gains yet, but at least it's a directional improvement on the employer income alone).

Anyway, I need to pay the taxes on the unemployment benefits I got but the damn state website is down for maintenance and I can't access the 1099-G form.

Was hoping to wrap this up tonight; have spent way more time on this than I would have liked. Ugh.

Taxes are one of those things a lot of guys feel they need to do on their own in order to be manly even though it's not really in their wheelhouse...like grilling a good steak. I always figure, if the fee is deminimus, hiring an expert to do a task I don't do routinely is the way to go...particularly if it's a task that could have large ramifications.

So what I'm saying is don't be cheap bearded clams and pay a good CPA to do your taxes.

My taxes aren't nearly complicated enough to warrant a CPA. Standard deduction will do just fine for me.

The only lesson here for me is don't cheap out on TurboTax vs. the others.

It worked out well with his wheel sensor, why not with taxes!

I used Free Tax USA (web based service) and it seems to work well. Owed a trivial amount last year but got a refund this year. Not really sure what Turbo Tax or CPA would do differently. Not to mention my stuff just isn't that complicated.

Most people who have income from a day job can just file a tax return using their W2. Easy peasy.

Relative advantage.  If we all focused on what we  do best, and hired people to do what they're best at, we'd likely be better off.  I'm right at the cusp about hiring someone to do my taxes.  I don't use standard deduction, but the  process with the software is easy.  That being said, it may become advantageous soon if for nothing more than tax planning advice.

I'm broke and have a complicated tax return. Best of both worlds. (At least it means my complicated tax return probably won't be audited.)
