April is tax season. Everyone has a method for filing taxes. It’s as limitless as the deductions you can claim.
Many choose to go it alone and prepare their own taxes. And there’s always your brother-in-law, who your wife swears is good with numbers.
But for those who don’t, there’s an army of professionals – from CPAs, attorneys and accountants to tax preparers – who know the tax code and can navigate the e-file process for you.
Better make that appointment now. Personal income tax returns are due Tuesday, April 17.
