Taxes: 2008 Edition
"Certainty? In this world nothing is certain but death and taxes". ~ Benny Franklin
For years I kicked it old school with my taxes. I filled in the forms by hand and mailed them to Revenue Canada. At some point I discovered that after I filled in the forms by hand I could enter the info over the telephone and get back my refund faster. I did that until a few years ago when started buying tax software to do my taxes online before I uploaded the .tax file to Revenue Canada via the interweb.
That's what I did this afternoon. I coughed up $20 to QuickTax and did my 2007 taxes online. I am 33 years old and I've never dreaded tax time because every year I get a refund. Now that we're a single income family, my refund has never been higher, so I don't mind spending a couple of extra bucks for e-help.
I figure I've been filing taxes for about 18 years now. I've gone from mailing my taxes to using telefile to using efile. How do you file your taxes and do you do them yourself?
