There are but they are very risky. The IRS's A/A can be very serious.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Can you elaborate? It will be my first time using TT.

Best value by far . Plus there are coupons.

You can also use TT user friendly interface for free up to filing, to compare/make sure u don't miss anything.

I'd advise you to use taxact.com, select a paid package and go through all the steps... it will show you exactly how much your refunds will be.. and you dont need to pay unless you actually file.
then use a free version (whatever ny will offer - last year they offered H&R, or try the new creidtkarma) and see if it comes out the same amount..

To use the expression "it's Greek to me", taxes and any other financial info is Greek to me. I don't get any of it and I just smile and nod.

I've always used the family CPA to file but I feel it's time to finally cut the cord and do things on my own and I'm looking at turbo tax.

Based on their checklist I would need deluxe, I'm curios to hear from the gurus if I would be able to handle it myself or should I continue being spoonfed?

TIA!!

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.
