Filing taxes cheaply/ *Miami UPDATE*

by frugalista on February 25, 2009

Taxes has some discounts on TurboTax.  You can file your federal taxes for free through the IRS website,

Also,  Miami offers free tax preparation for residents.The taxes are prepared by volunteers and IRS representatives and it’s like going to an accountant, except for free! While at the site, individuals can apply for a free cell phone service and other benefits through the Benefit Bank- of course some restrictions apply such as income level, but it is worth a try. There are two “Super Sites” at Manuel Artime Theater, 900 S.W. 1st Street, 4th floor  and Corpus Christi 3220 NW 7th Ave.  The hours are Monday through -Thursday,  6-8 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., plus the 13 Miami’s Neighborhood Enhancement Team (NET) offices, regular business hours, Monday through Friday 9:a.m. to 5 p.m.  Residents may call 311 to find the nearest office.  Bring your 2008 income tax, original social security card and a current id.

I filed my taxes during No-Buy Month to kill some time. I am SO glad to have that out of the way. The old Natalie would have waited until April 15th to think about her taxes. Yay for financial responsibility!

Do you go to an accountant? Do you use a business like H&R Block? Do you file online with TurboTax or the government?  Do you itemize?
