    $135, for the simplest return we have had in many years.

    I pay 265 but I have a very very very good tax guy/ lawyer combo. He is working on his PHD now and has a partner that is a tax lawyer. He gets my deductions down good.

    A good tax guy (not h and r block) can save you thousands of dollars.


    ETA: I own my own business as most here do. If you file a straight 1040ez you can do that yourself for free.

    I don't pay unless I buy software. Mine is simple enough this year that I am probably going to just use the paper forms.

    Personal taxes - $0.44 cents for a stamp, a few cents for enevelope and paper, and whatever electricity it took to run a computer for 10 minutes.

    Now, the business taxes are a different story... :crying:

    Free federal through TurboTax Freedom.
    Free state through VA State efile.

    Getting a pretty nice refund. A lot more than I paid in. :)

    $260 state and federal, an increase of $10 over last year. I pay more for a CPA that also has a tax attorney.

    I wont file this year until August, but based on last year, I am guessing it will be in the $1600 range.

    Like $39 or something. But I know how to do taxes and do my own. FYI, if you have your own business or a lot of investments, etc, then hiring a good CPA is worth their weight in gold........the key is not in filing, any monkey can do that.....the skill comes from being able to do tax planning, etc that fit your needs in order to save you $$ in the long run.
