If you’re looking to save some money, preparing your taxes yourself can be tempting. If your tax return is simple, you could probably get away with filing your taxes yourself. However, if you own a business, have children or any other more complex tax situation, you’d probably be better off hiring a tax professional. Tax law can be hard to understand. Plus, there are changes every year, which can make things more difficult for people trying to file their own taxes. If you handle the filing of your own taxes, there’s also a chance you could make a mistake. Even if you have a simple return, it may be worthwhile to hire a professional.
