How To Save On Your Taxes Today

Have you started filing your taxes yet this year? Dealing with taxes is one of those things I never look forward to, so I'm so thankful that we have a tax specialist who handles most of the work for us.


As much as my husband and I enjoy pinching a penny, we've never done our own taxes in hopes of saving an extra buck.  Using someone we know (and trust) to handle our taxes has saved us hundreds (maybe thousands?) of dollars over the last fifteen years.  Because their daily business is working on taxes, they know the ins and outs of the tax code, are aware of deductions that we're clueless about, and they know our family personally (so they're always looking for additional savings that work for us!)


Here's what our tax preparer handles for us:

  • Let's us know what paperwork needs to be completed prior to starting our taxes.
  • Updates our taxes with additional deductions that are available.
  • Looks for even more ways to save on our taxes both for the current year and in the future.
  • Completes all the tax forms necessary and submits them to us to look over and sign prior to filing our taxes for us.


Unless you're very savvy at filing your own taxes, it's possible you're paying too much. People who hire tax professionals save time on their taxes and usually get a greater returnUsing a tax professional to tackle your taxes will help you find ways to lower your taxes in the future, as well as ways to save on your current taxes this year.  And you can't beat the the freedom of having someone do the hard work for you while  you save both money and time!

    I do my own for now because I'm single and have a very simple and easy return. But when I purchase a home, get married etc and my return gets more complex, I will definitely invest in a professional.

    • I think it definitely depends on where you’re at in life as to how much help you may need ~ I know for us it’s saved us on things we just didn’t know about which is helpful. Thanks so much for sharing!
