Some years, I’ve been scrambling up until the last minute. I have a small business, so I need to add up my income and expenses before I can file. I don’t do it throughout the year, so it’s a time consuming job.
For many years, I took my return to an accountant to check it over to see if I made any errors. However, she retired.
One year, I took my tax return to H&R Block when I had a complicated issue. I was surprised that it cost me about $160.
