Many people consider completing their own tax return forms. And frankly, most people are capable of accomplishing the task. But the real issues are:

  • Life is short; do you really want to spend your limited descretionary time studying and working on taxes? (There are hundreds of changes in the tax laws each year, and many of them are complex or interact with other provisions of the tax law in complicated ways.)
  • Once they are done, do you rest confidently that they are correct?
  • Did you really save money this year? Or could you have overlooked something that cost you more than the cost of a professional?
  • If you think you really saved money, given the hours you spent on your taxes, how much per hour did you really "work" for?
Even at that, it is worth being somewhat informed on tax issues. To help you toward that end, we have posted articles on selected topics that we anticipate could be valuable to you. The secondary menus above will provide access to information on that specific topic. Miscellaneous articles are listed below.

If you cannot find the information you are looking for, you may submit a question and we will do our best to both respond and post your question with its answer.

Each of the summaries below are a link to an article. Click on the summary to select it.
