Chapter 47. Personal Finances > Making Tax Time Less Taxing

Making Tax Time Less Taxing

There are lots of advantages to using a computer to do your taxes. First of all, the software does all the arithmetic for you, eliminating a lot of human error. Also, tax preparation programs can automatically sort and add all of those receipts you're keeping in shoe boxes. Once the receipts are entered in the program, the program keeps them all straight.

Another useful feature of tax programs is that they include all the forms that most taxpayers need. You don't have to order forms or even search around your desk. You just bring them up in the program, fill them out onscreen, and print them to send them in. Most programs can also be used to file your returns electronically, although that requires paying a small fee to another company.
