I am here on DooTalk awaiting a 'Secure Line' on TurboTax to do my taxes and have been waiting almost an hour. Every year it's something different, some stupid clitch that delays doing my taxes, not to mention my procrastination. Last year I bought TurboTax at Meijers, got all done only to find out I needed the State upgrades....Pain in the "edit for bad language", the year before, something different.....there, I vented.......
anyone else HATE doing taxes????

Turbo Tax all the way. I am self employed and it makes it really easy. It is nice because you can go make changes after the fact. It is very simple as well. Why pay a bean counter to screw up your taxes

I paid a CPA to do mine for years. Then I bought a copy of Turbo Tax and tried it myself. Each year I have a buddy run them through his accountant tax software and he's yet to come back with more refund than TT gives me. I'm usually done in about 30 minutes including filing. Have my direct deposited refunds in 7 days.

Always gets us a huge refund and we are done in 15 minutes!!

Well, last night I waited over an hour to get that private line (may not have been a long time to some, but I'm impatient) on turbotax.com and it never came. I'm gonna try again today and if it don't work, I'm gonna go to H&R. Glad some of you are having luck. I'm hoping to get some money back so I can do the casino thing next weekend after the sled is put away.....

heh, I'm having turbo tax issues this year as well. My main computer is a mac, I turn on my PC about once a year, to use turbotax... after 4 hours of windows updates, norton anti-virus scans, etc, I realized that the 2005 turbotax disk says 'windows' _and_ 'mac' on it. YAY! I pop the disk in the mac, pay for it, enter the reg code, and then turbotax just keeps crashing over and over... I guess they don't have the mac port worked out yet... back to the PC...
Anyway, unless your taxes are complicated because you own your own business or something, or you go to a tax man that uses some 'shady' tricks, I think turbo tax gives you just as good of a return as an honest tax man. I paid H.R. block one year, and also did it myself through turbotax, (but didn't pay/or file through turbo tax) and they came out the same...
