    :mad: :mad: :mad: well, I think HR Block sucks monkey butts! I just blew 220 bucks for them to file my taxes and didn't even get a kiss after being fu(ked. needless to say, I may find someone else to take care of them next year.

    Turbo Tax costs to much. I guess some people can use it for free, but I'm not one of them. I just fill the forms out at work and mail them in. Costs less than a buck for both state/federal that way. Takes about an hours worth of time... and the refund is transfered electronically to my bank fast enough for me.

    Taxes definitely suck... I guess we should all just be glad that liberals aren't in command right now... or they'd be even higher. :(

    It'll get worse as you get older. I haven't been able to do the EZ in so long I forgot about it.

    Taxes do suck.... TurboTax isn't all that great either, but it's what I've used the last 2 years.

    After this year, discovering errors in turbo tax that would have been Audit flags, and spending more time fixing the erros, I've decided next year I'm going to hire a CPA.

    I own a small business, had business use of my home, I own a house w/ a 1st & 2nd mortgage, and my wife is in school, I bought & sold stock, contributed to my 401k, received a distro. from an old 401k

    My tax return was like 15 pages :eek1:
