Simply stated - you can't afford not to.
You may have been preparing your own tax return for several years with a tax prep software program, which is great, and it has worked well for you until all of a sudden, things changed last year. You may have sold and purchased a home, or have rental property or medical expenses, or college tuition, etc., etc. Now, what do you do? Can you really carve out several more hours from your already packed schedule to research all the answers to your questions?
That's where a tax expert can save you time and usually, money, to professionally prepare your individual income tax return.
Dave Ramsey recently posted an article on his blog that explains this better than I ever could. Click here to read his article entitled, "Tax Refund Heartache for Self-Filers."
