We are currently in the thick of tax season 2023. If you have not filed your taxes yet, have no fear, because filing taxes is a lot less “taxing” than in the past. Before the standard was to hire an accountant or go to a tax service agency to have your taxes filed, which would cost you anywhere between $200-$600. In 2023 there are plenty of tools and tax preparation software applications that allow the average citizen to file their taxes on their own for little to no cost; in this article we will provide you with them.
A popular tax service application is TurboTax. It is the #1 best-selling tax preparation software to file taxes online. This software can cost $40-$180, depending on the services or features the user needs. H&R Block now offers an option to file taxes online. For simple filing situations such as those with W2 income or students, this tax preparation software can be free and easy but those who may be independent contractors or business owners it can start at $89. Lastly, a tax preparation software to consider is TaxAct. This online software allows users to file their federal taxes for free and state taxes for an additional $40.
