Get Ready For Tax Season Once Again

It is once again time to start seriously thinking about taxes.  You should be preparing for your taxes all year round but since the documents start rolling in around this time it really brings taxes to the forefront.

I already filed mine a long time ago but you still have a little bit of time to get yours done if you have not already sent all your stuff in. I used Turbo Tax this year but I have used H&R block in the past and must say I had a good experience with both sets of software. If you wait until the last minute because you know you have to pay then you...
