No. I'm not talking about Valentine's Day. I'm TALKING tax season! Where uncle sam decides to give us back our money after taking it from us all year round.
Being the nice guy that I am, I'm gonna hand out some tips and advice to make sure you keep all your hard earned money.
(Note: These advice is intended for informative purposes. And should only be used if the situation applies to you. For more information, contact a profession tax consultant or CPA.)
For starters, don't fall for those RAL/rapid refund schemes. Most of the time they take out a good chunk of your refund. Unless you're desperate for the cash, then do what you gotta do.
Second, why go to those tax guys when you can go online at http://irs.gov and get either get your taxes done for FREE and file them FREE. And takes less time to wait for your refund check.
If you don't have access to a computer at home, take a trip to the library. One: they have computers you can use. Two, some branches have volunteers to help you out with your taxes for FREE.
And if all possible, open a checking account and get your refund check DIRECT DEPOSITED! Why give those check cashing places 3-10% fee for your check?
It's your money, you have a right to get ALL of it back.
Thanks for reading!
