We stopped doing our own tax return when we bought our house 10 years ago. That chore was never one I relished and once we took on home ownership I wanted every advantage that we could get. Plus, I was a little fearful of making expensive mistakes. Have you used tax prep software to do your taxes; like Turbo Tax or H&R or something similar? Was it an experience you would repeat or would you counsel someone with good basic match and computer skills NOT to take the chance?
