Re: Who Does Your Taxes?

My dh did his own before we married, but I've done them ever since. I used to be in charge of family finances, but I quit about a year ago, because I was tired of being the one who had to make everything work out, and I thought dh ought to really get into the guts of what it costs us to live. (He lived with his parents until we got married, because he was still in school.) I told him he had to do it for 6 months before I would do it again. Now he won't let me have them back. :P He claims we fight less about finances now, and that I'm happier, which I'm not sure is true, but if it makes him happy...?

I do. He did his own when he was single, but since we've been married, I took over for both. It's easy for me...I actually enjoy it.

Re: Who Does Your Taxes?

We usually do them together for the most part. One of us may start them or finish them, but usually we both look over it. Truthfully I don't think I'd trust DH to do them all by himself.

DH handles the finances, but we have a professional do our taxes. We've been using the accountant for almost 4 years. Before that, DH did them.

Re: Who Does Your Taxes?

We go to Liberty Tax Service. Last year we decided to do them ourselves at When I finished, before submitting my DH said "No, that can't be right. It's too much." So he wanted to take them to Liberty (we've been going to Liberty for 5 of 6 years). So when we went in and they did our taxes.. AFTER accounting for their fees, we got like $800 MORE than what Turbo Tax said we would get.

So, we decided to just keep going to Liberty, although we had so any forms this year (4 W2's, 401k early withdrawal, education paper from the school, ... that it cost more than we were used to paying. But next year we'll have less paperwork.

God bless!

Re: Who Does Your Taxes?

So yeah, I read it wrong

DH has a finance degree and is a tax specialist for an investments firm so he handles our budget and taxes. I picked the first option though. Sorry!

Me. I use turbo tax, it's really simple and I love that it imports things from prior years and our charitable deductions that I enter through the year.
