Doing Your Own Taxes Online–Safe and Secure; No Problem.


Doing your own taxes is confusing, difficult, and time consuming right?  Not hardly.  Many people would rather pay H&R Block or another professional tax preparer hundreds of dollars just so they don’t have to do the math, but I’m here to tell you that doing your own taxes online is almost as easy as breathing and typing. 

“Where would one do their own taxes online and not have to worry about security and math errors?”  The answer to that question is quite simple.  Federal tax returns can be filed at www.irs.gov for free, and you don’t even have to do the math.  You have two options doing it this way:  1.  File online for free by clicking “efile my taxes for free.”  Select your preferred method and get the ball rolling.  2.  Download the form you need , and since it is the IRS, they have all the forms that anyone could possible need, fill them out on your PC and mail them.

Your State Tax Return may be a little different, but most states have the option of doing them online as well.  If you live in Maryland, as I do, all you have to do is go to www.maryland.gov and click on “2010 Tax Filing Information is Now Available,” and then clicking “”File Electronically iFile/bFile.”  After creating an account, fill in your information and figures, and submit.

Doing your own taxes can save you hundreds of dollars, and in today’s economy, isn’t a bad idea to put that money back into your pocket.  I can think of a lot of other things that I’d rather spend my money on!  H&R Block charged me almost a hundred dollars extra a few years ago just to file my taxes electronically!  I usually do my own taxes, but the year I let H&R Block do them I was in really bad shape after a serious accident.  I had just been released from the hospital after being ran over by a semi, literally.  Pedestrians and Semis don’t mix too well!  Looking back on it now though, if my shoulders and neck weren’t broken, I would have done them myself then too!

About WilliamSipe

I moved to Baltimore in 1994 to continue my printing career, and to seek out better opportunities. While picking up valuable experience in two different printing companies, I began thinking of starting my own business. My son was born on July 31, 2004, and is a very special child that means the world to me. After a near-fatal accident that left me disabled in 2004 and unable to return to my printing job, I decided to fall back on my passion for photography and graphic design and work for myself. This is when Pro-PhotoShots was born. Deciding to make photo gifts such as t-shirts, mouse pads, tote bags, sportspacks just to name a few, I bought the necessary equipment and went to work. Using my industrial grade quality materials and equipment and my experience in both photography and graphic design, I went public with my website (www.Pro-PhotoShots.com) offering my services to the world! It's been a great experience, and I hope we are still going strong many years from now.
