Tax forms and statements are being gathered and sent through the mail as tax day begins to draw closer.

There is still a long ways to go to until taxes are due, but it's never too soon to start planning and organizing.

When the time comes, who will do the work?  Do you do your own taxes?

The more complicated your taxes are the more it makes sense to get help.  Sort of.  Because the more complicated your taxes get, the more it will cost to get help filling out your tax forms.

Starting about 6-7 years ago I began paying someone to do my taxes.  I haven't looked back since.  Saving the time and eliminating the stress has proven to be worth it for me.

Considerations include: the cost of getting your taxes done, time available to do them yourself, how complicated your taxes are, and more.
