On top of the pain of preparing for our tax appointment, is the actual cost of the appointment. Ever since I opened my daycare we've gone to H&R Block since there is so much put into our tax preparation. The woman who's done our taxes every year since our second year with H&R Block does an excellent job and we've always gotten back a nice rebate, but they are expensive. Just today I went ahead and made an appointment with a different accountant. She's not with a financial giant like the other place so their costs are lower, which makes our costs lower. I'm just hoping there will be a great big fat rebate check coming our way to make it all worth it!
I really want your input on this one... What/who do you use to file your taxes? What software or record keeping devices do you use to manage your general or business finances? Do you have any links to great financial management websites or blogs that you would care to share?
