My wife and I used to file our taxes with the help of an accountant for several years because she was a realtor. Realtors have a lot of out-of-pocket expenses that are tax-deductible.

But since she gave up that maddening profession, I've been filing our taxes with TurboTax. I usually upgrade from the free service and spend $59 for the Deluxe. That's not even the most expensive choice, but I feel like it gives me more options for my situation.

I'm not dissatisfied with TurboTax, but I think next year I will try what the expert in the video below suggests. I'm glad she covered the differences between the online Tax Services of TurboTax, H&R Block, and one I had never heard of called FreeTaxUSA.

It turns out that FreeTaxUSA is her choice and the one she's been using for quite some time. She is a former tax preparer and knows what she's talking about. The video is less than 8 minutes long and I think describes each service perfectly. Take a look and see what you think!
