If there’s one thing every one worries about when they decide to file past year tax return forms, it’s getting ripped off: so many sites offer information on how to file past year tax information late, but it’s often hard to pick one that’s going to give you your money’s worth.
So don’t just pick a site that gives you a good return on your investment — just don’t pay until you see the results you want!
How? It’s simple.
Some tax sites are going to charge you upfront for their services. While that’s a good way for them to lock you in as a customer, it’s not a great way to try out different tax preparation sites before choosing the one that’s right for you.
But other sites do it differently; they let you fill out your file past year tax return for no cost and no obligation, and then charge you only if you actually submit it to the IRS.
So how can you use this? Just fill out your taxes on a site that lets you set them up for free. Then, if don’t get a good deal on your past year tax return filing, you can just exit the site and move on. What you’ll probably find is that the site’s automatic deduction-and-tax-credit calculator saves you more money than you expected, and that it makes sense to file. But if you don’t, there’s no cost (except whatever the IRS charges for late taxes!).
