The Woodlands CPA Explains How DIY Can Fail You

The True Cost of DIY Tax Software


The Woodlands, Texas - It may seem like tax sofware is cheap at the outset. But these programs can end up leaving hundreds, or thousands of your hard-earned dollars in the hands of the IRS ... even if you follow all their instructions perfectly. CPA and Tax Expert, Aurelia Weems, explains the implications this has for your finances.

“In our line of work, much of what we get to do is to fix or alleviate those mistakes, at least when it comes to their tax implications. This year, of all years, carries so many changes that users who fall prey to screaming offers from the “cheap” options are more exposed to wallet-sucking mistakes, or even an audit. We accountants even joke about how good these online software programs (referring to popular tax-filing software, such as TaxSlayer, TurboTax, etc.) are for our businesses. Mainly because they aren’t as “easy to use” as they say, and they leave so much of your money on the table,” Weems said.

An IRS audit can be in the works also for folks who use DIY tax software, but unknowingly chose the wrong forms or filing method. It’s this kind of discrepancy that alerts the IRS, and then invites IRS agents to poke around in your private life.  
“This is so important, now more than ever, to use someone who knows how to file taxes properly” Weems added. “New 2012 and 2013 regulations, delays in Congressional action, and issues from the big chains continue to create a mess in the tax industry. The big brand names don’t want you knowing about… They’re doing everything they can this year to hold on to business, and it is not good for anyone.”
