The tax filing deadline is less than a month away. If you plan on using TurboTax (the program most people who self-prepare will use) you may want to get a jump on it this week. As they do every year, they raise the price at the end of the tax season to encourage people to file earlier and not all show up at once on April 15th. This year the price increase will take effect on March 28th. Save some money and get started today. They have TurboTax Tools and Calculators and a Tax Preparation Checklist to help get started.
If you are undecided about which solution is best for you, we took a look at the major do-it-yourself tax solutions back in December. The link is: http://moneycafe.com/blog/2008/12/time-to-look-at-tax-software/.
