My sister's an accountant, so we get ours done for free. We usually go over with snacks and cards or board games, she knocks out our filing (which are simple anyway), then we spend the evening just hanging out.
Filing a simple household return is easy, it's when you get into business expenses, gains and losses, donations and all that crap that it gets complicated. But my sister already has a program that's basically a blank W-2, she copies all the info into it exactly as it's shown on my W-2 and it does the rest automatically. Then she reviews it, we review it, she checks past filings to see if anything's been missed, and we sign it. For her clients who have more complicated issues, that's just where she starts. Many of them are self employed and small business owners and don't even get a W-2.
First and only time I got someone else to do it, because she was sick as hell and I lived pretty far away, they said "By the way, you own livestock now..."
Oh hell no. The outlaw in me always wants to stick it to the man, the semi-responsible adult in me prefers to stay out of trouble.
