I used an accountant for 5+ years, but 450.00 got too expensive.  Used turbo tax last year and loved it, just so easy!!

I used the previous years taxes as a cheat sheet to help me fill out all the forms.


Been using TurboTax since it came out and never

I used TurboTax too, and sm
I have a small transcription business on the side, so I had my W2 to file plus several 9910 misc. income as well.  This was my first year filing taxes with my own business, and it walked me right through it, asking every little detail.  It was great. 
Yes it is! I love it. Most of the calculations are done for you. You still need to have some figures in front of you when you use it though, like your home office deductions.  
TurboTax software
or one of the other tax programs will lead you through the process and make it very easy if you don't want to pay someone to do your taxes. Just make sure you have all your documentation handy and let the TurboTax program do the rest.
why not try to use turbotax and have a cpa look it over the first year
you can still use turbotax to do your personal taxes and just use a cpa to do your business taxes. I use mine for my corporate taxes but do my personal via Turbotax. It gets better each year as it keeps importing data.
tax Q&A - TurboTax, under 2 weeks
TurboTax or TaxCut
Which program do you think works better?
Rental properties and TurboTax sm
Anyone have rental properties and do your own taxes with TurboTax?  We used to have rentals and the accountant did the taxes but charged us like close to $400.00 for our return.  We have since sold everything and this year I did them with TurboTax and really the features.  Now we are thinking of purchasing another small rental and would like to know how TurboTax is with rentals.  Is it easy and pretty much self-explanatory?  Do you like to use it for this or do you have an accountant do it?  Thanks in advance. 
I used on-line TurboTax and it was free
TurboTax Home and Business.

I've used TurboTax for self-employment
and never had any troubles at all. I've used them for about 4-5 years now.
Did mine through TurboTax, got it via DD in 7-8 days.
TaxAct and TurboTax will work for self-employed.
No need to buy the expensive business versions of them either. I don't know about TaxCut, but I'm sure it's the same. No, you do not have to prepay your taxes quarterly either. The first year is considered a "trial run" meaning that you need to establish a base pay before they can establish a quarterly tax payment amount due. I've been self-employed for 10 years now and have never made quarterly tax payments because I've never owed.
Used TurboTax & Hubby said go to our tax attorney just to be sure u got everything back you could he

Any rose gardeners out there? Good roses that are disease proof and smell good?
I heard good things about Knockout Rose but they don't smell too much like traditional rose.  Supposedly blooms all season.

Agree with other poster.. good price..good service
I definitely think they are one of the best out there. We also have been talked through issues over the phone and also had a warranty in which they came out and fixed it right at our home. My only complaint..and I am sorry for saying this.. but... when you call their customer service 9 out of 10 times...you get someone who barely speaks English and I just hate that. I think that is true of a lot of customer support centers these days, ironically they are rarely American anymore. I am not prejudice at all. I just find it frustrating to call in for help and the help you get barely understands you and you do not understand them, thus making the experience very frustrating..
Expensive is right -- around $300 per credit hour! But they do have a good rep. Good luck! nm

I believe Pilates is good for shaping and strength, but you still need some cardio for good fat
Maybe try to find a good web site to refer to! Good luck NM
Good for you. Sounds very interesting and a good chance of pace - sm

but I live in the northeast and not much need for that where I live.  I also live in a small town so that limits my options.  I have spent the last couple of years as a substitute teacher to supplement my MT job and just completed 4-1/2 months as a long term sub which I enjoyed and was a change of pace from MT.  The only problem is as a sub or ed tech you only get paid during the school year so I would have to keep my MT job for summers and school vacations.  With the way things are going in the MT world I hate to rely solely on that.  I don't want to find myself without any job whatsoever.   

Thanks for all the responses.    

8 is NOT good if never going any higher - good to get the rust out in the short term though
Is the dictation quality good, are the dictators good, are you
a newbie and you still have to look up lots of words ....   The very first day I typed, with absolutely no education way back when, when you didn't have to have a degree/certificate or previous experience, I typed 665 lines.  This was without an expander and I was not a fast typist.   I can do 1000 lines in about 4 hours now on average. 
LOL! Well, good! I've done ONE good thing today, then. NM
You have a good, realistic attitude about it. Good luck to you. nm

Good money? Can we ask how much is considered GOOD in your books????

I am sure MQ will change their policies now because of the actions you took. Congrats.
Yep, a good MTSO will get rid of the crappy doctor, not the good MT...sm
unfortunately, there aren't many MTSOs out there who will confront a poor dictator and nip it in the bud to begin with.

In the old days we used to do this all the time. A doctor was put on report and told to shape up and if he didn't he would either be charged more because they had to pay an MT more to do his lousy dictation, or he was always given the option to do his own reports if he wouldn't comply.

Believe it or not, almost every physician my former company did this to straightened up their act became good dictators and found that it was actually less stressful and less time consuming for them too!!

The MTSOs just don't have the guts to do this anymore... and they should. I can make more money on good dictators with a lower line rate than crappy dictators at a higher rate, and would rather have the better dictators and lower rate than the other... it's a win-win for both the MT and MTSO because the MT is making more money per hour and the MTSO gets to pay less for her MTs and make a better profit. I can't believe the MTSOs haven't figured this one out.
This is not a good choice. There are too many good schools

that have proven their worth. Andrews, MTEC and even Career Step, but I would not choose a school that has spammed the internet in every crack there is as the one you have mentioned.  Find some graduates and see what they have to say.  Go to mtchat.com and do a search of this school. 

Thank you too! A good laugh is a good thing.

I really wish you good health and good luck!

I know that what you are doing is a major undertaking.  Just remember that this is what you want and that you CAN do it!  It won't be easy by any stretch of the imagination, but once you have accomplished it, you will truly know what you are capable of.  I think you are very brave.  Please know that all of us are pulling for you and are here to help you if you need it.  Go to the hospital if you are feeling at all unsure or unstable.  Don't give up because the reward will be great.  Please let us know how you are doing.

Pulling for you!

good for you; you'll get more from it, with good socialization,
Very good...very good answer. Right on the money! (nm)
Without too much effort?! A good yard sale takes a good deal of effort, IMO.
Hight staff turnover = high client turnover if you don't pay attention.
The good old days were not so good for me. sm
Transcribing from tapes on a Selectric typewriter with 3 or 4 carbons and white out, no spellcheck, no expansion program, no internet for research.  
I agree! To be a good MT we must take the good with the bad!
It sometimes takes longer to learn ESL docs and is a pain in the butt, but all that does not kill us makes us stronger!! I don't love doing ESL docs by any means, but if I want a job - I need to do what my employer asks of me. Take the good and bad - or find a new job! I applaud you for working with your MTs, but you really shouldn't have to! I have only been an MT for two years and I cannot imagine telling my boss that I am not willing to learn something. How rude!
Oh, that's good! Cruel, but good! LOL!
Good for you. Good enough reasons for me, too!
Good for you. Good luck in whatever you do next. nm

Glad your puppy is okay. Keep that girl away!
Good for you!
There's a reason kids are cruel to animals and it is never the animals fault, but usually something in the environment of the kid.

I am so glad you had the camera running, but I sure wouldn't leave that pup outside alone when you are not around. He doesn't deserve to pay for the poor parenting that kid has to endure.
