Thread Details

Starting yesterday all Liberty Tax Services are offering a "Cash in a Flash" promotion. This means they will give you $50 cash when you come in and get your taxes done! I went last night to my local store and they handed me $50. With paid tax preparation. One coupon per customer. Coupons may not be combined with any other offer.

They won't give you a quote over the phone but if you go there they will put your information into the software and then give you a quote. I paid less than I did last year at H & R block plus they gave me $50!

This might be YMMV, most Liberty's are independently owned.

Ballpark range to have them do your taxes? I've never had anyone do them for me before, so I have no idea how much a relatively simple joint return would cost.

I use www.taxact.com It is totally free if you don't do the deluxe version. Used it for 3 years with no problems. And I double checked it a couple of years ago against turbo tax and the numbers came out the same. (BTW, you don't need the deluxe version unless you have rentals or other odd things.)

If you use taxact (might use it this year), can you get direct deposit into your bank?

so basically this is a instant $50 rebate, i've been doing my taxes online now for a few years, so I don't remember exactly how much it used to cost (sorry karen182). but say you pay $100 (random guess), they then give you back $50 on a Giftcard? is that the way it works op?

These places are all a scam. 99% of the people who go to them could spend 10 minutes filing out a 1040EZ themselves. It's fill in the blank people. They prey on idiots who have nothing more substantial then a W2 or two. They're like check cashing stores that make their money by preying on the weak minded.

If you make less then ~$55,000 a year you can use the IRS Free File service with one of their partners. H&R Block has a very impressive online version of their tax software that can deal with most financial situations. And it's FREE.

In my opinion, there are three groups of tax payers:
1) People who have nothing more then a W2 and can very easily and quickly file a 1040EZ. These people, assuming they can read, should have no real problem doing it themselves. No need to pay for it unless they are retarded.
2) People who have a moderately complex financial situation, and may need to file a 1040 and some schedules. Rental income, capital gains/loss, etc. Generally, these people are more intelligent then group #1 so they should be able to either fill out the paperwork themselves, or pay ~$30 and get TurboTax/TaxCut/Etc. and do it very easily this way.
3) People with extremely complex financial situations that would either require too much of their time researching the tax laws, could put in misinformation accidentally costing them significant amounts of money, or take too much time to sit down and do it themselves. Generally people with signficant assets, liabilities, etc. This is the only group of people that might actually need someone to do their taxes for them, and these people are generally going to have accountants anyway. They're not going to use some guy who spent 4 hours in a training seminar making $7/hour.

I too have been using taxact for a few years, but last year NY state audited me for 2006, and wanted some money back from me.

I got my brother-in-law to review my taxes. He had me ammend (re-file?) 2006 returns and both state and federal ended up paying me, instead of me paying them.

I bet you they won't be auditing me again, but I am thinking of having my brother-in-law re-do my taxes for 2007, 2008, 2009 and do my taxes for 2010.

Taxact seemed like a good solution, but at his first glance at my 1040 he saw a number of mistakes...

Needless to say, I won't be using Taxact...

Couldn't agree more!

I have a challenge for anyone that has not done their taxes before. Go to one of the free sites and run through them all the way to the end. It really doesn't take that long and you can just leave before filing. Then if you REALLY want to pay someone to do it, compare your results to what they come up with. I'm guessing 9 times out of 10 they will be identical! Give it a shot. The worst case scenario is you lose an hour or two of your time one night of the week.

I work at a public library and someone from our local Liberty office (in costume, mind you) just dropped off a box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts with a whole bunch of post-it notes advertising this deal attached to the top! They weren't cream filled...but free doughnuts are free doughnuts.
