All around the world governments are reminding people it's time to pony up! Infrastructure won't build itself! How many of you happen to prepare your own tax filing, and how many pay for a professional to do it for you? Back in the day I did it all by myself, with a free program called StudioTax. Any Canadian looking to do their own taxes I suggest using Studiotax, it's 100% free and very trustworthy. I always kicked in 5%-10% of my return to the good people at Studiotax for the hard work they do on the program. Now my situation is a little more complex, so I pay a professional $75 to prepare two returns. What is is like where you live? Do you have any tax advice for your fellow countrypeople?
