It is that time of the year again! We are all busy getting ready for tax time. This year I have partnered with my friends at TurboTax to bring you the answers to your questions.
Last week we talked about freelancing and tax time. If you missed the chat and want to read the transcript, I created a storify of the chat so you get caught up.
This week we are talking about families. There are so many ways for families to save and even get money back on their taxes. There were also some recent changes that will effect Canadian families too. You can read about those on the TurboTax Blog. The resident TurboTax expert will also be on the chat so if you have any questions you can get them answered.
Are you still trying to get organized for tax time? I wrote a post awhile ago that was filed with some tips that will help you get organized.
Have you tried using the software yet? If you are doing your own taxes with TurboTax, they will help you every step of the way. After all, the software walks you through everything, asking you key questions every step. You really don’t need to worry about being up to date on knowing every single change, as they have taken care of that for you. Another key feature of TurboTax is that if you need assistance, you can ask a question and get it answered in real time. They even double check everything so you can feel comfortable filing your return. While none of this will make taxes fun, hopefully using TurboTax and getting some more money back with the changes to the tax system will make it a little less painful.
Did you know depending on your circumstances you may even be able to file with TurboTax for free? It is even good for simple and complex returns and is up to date on all the latest credits and deductions.
Now, I am sure you have a few questions so please join me on Tuesday April 5th, 2016 at 7 pm EST to talk taxes with the team from TurboTax Canada.
They are even bringing some great prizes.
