Unlike an IRS-certified tax preparer, your tax software doesn't sign or stand behind your returns. Software often contains bugs and glitches that skew results. And the U.S. Court has ruled that you are responsible for any errors in your returns, even if the goof was made by the software and not you.
The retail tax stores are your most expensive option for tax preparation, because they have the highest operating cost: a staff of full-time employees and a brick-and-mortar building.
During tax season, you may have a long wait until a tax preparer can see you and prepare your returns. And the retail stores often hire novices with little or no tax experience - in fact they often state ''no experience necessary'' in their help-wanted ads!
An exaggeration? Perhaps. But it underscores that many local tax preparers are minimally qualified: they are not required to complete competency testing or take continuing education. And because there's no rating system, no Angie's List for tax preparers, you don't know whether their clients are satisfied. Worse, the reason you went with this person is solely because they are local, not because they have the most experience preparing your type of return.

The process was so easy! I just took a picture of my W-2 with my cell phone, uploaded it and they took care of everything else.
