I do love tax time. Not sure why, I think it is because I used to work at a accounting firm.
Once again I get to choose a tax software. I have been using TaxCut for the past 2 years and started to wonder if I should switch back to turbotax. I migrated to TaxCut when turbotax added a piece of software that got into your bios and did someother fun things to ensure you did not get pirated copies. I did not like the idea of a software writing things on my harddrive and such. So about 2 years ago I switched to TaxCut. So I did some research this year to see who is better. Some things I found both from Money Magazine and online is that TaxCut is the winner this year.
Both on price and simplicity. From what I can find TurboTax does more hand holding and looks nicer but that was not enough for it to beat out the cheaper product (TaxCut). I also found there is one other player in the market, I just can’t remember the name or link. They were substantially cheaper but did not get that high of reviews.
So happy tax season. (I am purchasing TaxCut today)
