Every year, we collect our receipts, get our bank books in order, break out the calculators and prepare to do the taxes.
Taxes, in fact, are one of the most age-old facts of life. Even Ancient Egyptians paid taxes to the pharaoh thousands of years ago. In fact, they paid in tithes of oil, grains and various other food stuffs instead of money. Of course if the Ancient Egyptians didn’t pay their taxes, they got forty lashes! (Bankruptcy doesn’t seem as bad all of a sudden…)
Certainly it’s a duty that can, of course, be taxing! (excuse the pun.) Thankfully, in the present age, though we may still have to pay taxes, we can at least choose our method of doing so.
One of the best ways to do your taxes is by using the internet. Going to the post office to get your income tax forms can be a real hassle, especially during tax season, but doing taxes online is just a few clicks away. Why put all the effort into heading out to the post office, and waiting in the possibly huge lines to get a form you could get in ten seconds from your computer?
The IRS offers free forms on it’s website, and free filing to people in certain income brackets as well. Another great place to find digital income forms and get them filed is TurboTax Online.
It’s a great cheap way to get your taxes done. TurboTax Online has quite a lot of tax information that can answer any questions you have concerning your taxes, and the info is free.
