No one I know really loves paying taxes, except maybe this guy I saw last year at the Rally to Restore Sanity with his "Honestly, I don't mind paying taxes" sign.
However, in these challenging economic times, it’s good to save what you can and get every dollar you have coming to you. Did you know you may not have to pay to prepare and file your taxes? For people who make less than $57k, you can file your taxes online free.
Or, if you make less than $49k, you can not only file online free, but you can also have your taxes prepared and filed free by an IRS-trained volunteer at a Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) site, run by nonprofits like United Way. It’s easy to find a site –- just dial 2-1-1 or visit http://liveunited.org/freetaxprep
The IRS says more than 80% of Americans pay a tax preparer or buy tax software to prepare and file their taxes.
