Thread Details

I've been using Turbotax for a couple of years to do my taxes. I work as a full time employee as well as a freelancer for several companies both in state (Florida) and out of state.

For 2016, I had a few things happen that changes how I will have to do taxes this year. I decided to finally register my business (LLC) from doing freelancing over the years with the state of Florida. I also sold my condo and am exempt from capital gains tax as I've held it for 2 years and it was my first and only property at the time. I have no dependents and have also been going to school part time during 2016.

How complicated will my tax be given the situation above? Should I consider getting an accountant or can I still do my own? Lastly, which version of TT should I get?

It is usually best to have someone professional do your taxes once in a while in your situation. They might find stuff that TT has missed or vice versa you can file an amended return anytime.

Agree with the above post why not let someone do it for you and see how that goes? when your taxes get a little complicated best to have someone in that area give it a try. Theirs a reason they study so give them a try course if your not satisfied than go back to doing them yourself for the next year.
