Ways to Do Taxes

Savvy Community: Should I Use Turbo Tax or Hire an Accountant?


This post was shared by reader

I'm getting ready to do my taxes and they are pretty easy.  I want to get the maximum refund especially since I moved this year to a city that requires you to pay additional taxes.

Which is better, using Turbo Tax or Hiring an Accountant?

A friend recommended an accountant that always gets her a couple thousand dollars back each year that costs $175.  Turbo Tax is a lot cheaper but I'm worried that because it is so general it might miss something that could give me a bigger refund.

Thoughts?
