This post is brought to you by The Motherhood and MyFreeTaxes. All opinions are 100% mine!
I don’t know about you, but tax season is always a headache around here. I have to admit that I am not the best at keeping records throughout the year. Therefore, I tend to scurry around in February through March, gathering receipts, 1099s and other necessary documents to file my taxes online.
Then there’s all the dreaded questions, credits, deductions, forms….yada yada. Luckily, my husband knows a little bit about all the tax stuff because I typically do not have a clue. What I DO know is…
Then comes the payment for e-filing our taxes. We always have to do the deluxe options because we own a house and I am employed. So, we have to shell out roughly $100 each year to file the darned taxes.
Why can’t there be a free easy tax filing option out there?
