Tax Prep Dilemna

by on Thursday, February 1st, 2018

It is that time of year again. It’s time to gather up all of those statements that have been arriving in the mail every day since Mid January. I’ve been doing my taxes myself for several years using a website called FreeTaxUSA. It is free for your federal tax return and charges about $13 to complete your state tax return.

This year I wanted to look for professional help because I had some things come up last year that were not typical for me. I did not make much money but I have a lot of 1099’s and such forms. So I made a trip to Jackson Hewett for an estimate of the cost to prepare my taxes. Although I didn’t make much money, and certainly won’t be getting a big tax deduction, it would cost $300-$400 to prepare my taxes. That’s highway robbery!! The only benefit for me for filing through Jackson Hewett is that you can get an advance on any return due you.

So, now I’m stuck with a dilemma. Do I attempt to prepare them on my own hoping that the computer software prompts me for all of the possible situations that may develop or do I pay thru the nose to have them prepared? I sure don’t want to get into any tax situation with the IRS and I don’t want to owe them money down the road.

It is never a good thing to need an attorney, but if you ever need a Tennessee personal injury lawyer, I can recommend very highly the The Law Firm of Flora Templeton Stuart, they have went out of their way to assist my family with a legal issue we have had over the last year and I feel that they have went far and beyond in assisting us.

Since my Dad had his accident he has been unable to work and the Law Firm of Flora Templeton Stuart have helped him in every way they could and with this cases coming to a end I am very glad that my Dad found this great law firm to help him get what he is due.

I know that my Dad has enjoyed working with the folks at Law Firm of Flora Templeton Stuart, and they have been very pleasant when I have had to call to set up an appointment for my Dad. I will recommend them to every one that I know in this area when a great lawyer is needed it is most of the time to late to start a search and to have a great legal team on your side is a must in these hectic days.

AS goes the national economy, goes our family business. Our family has had a Mexican Restaurant in Texas since the 1950’s, and now it had become very obvious to the entire family that we need to declare bankruptcy to try and save the business. As I began to search for bankruptcy information and check the Texas Bankruptcy laws. Bankruptcy laws are a lot tougher than they used to be and I want to thank Bankruptcy Laws Texas for the great web site with so much information to assist us in our time of need. I think with all the help we have received from Bankruptcy Laws Texas we can pull through this tough time.

DUI

by on Sunday, June 22nd, 2008

Another Tennessee Titian was arrested this weekend for DUI. Jevon Kearse was arrested on West End early this morning for DUI. Again I say if you are home at 3 am you will not be going to jail. This city has been bombarded by drunk driving of sports stars and music people for years, I think the justice system should throw the book at these people just like they do for ordinary people. That is the only way to stop the drunken stupidity. They seem to have an over blown sense of ego that needs to be reigned in.
