If there’s one thing I hate about doing taxes, it’s doing taxes for other people. Ever since people found out that I do my own taxes, they’ve all been asking me to do their taxes for them. They offered to pay me, which is nice, but I would rather not have to look at all of those tax documents for so many people. Still since I wanted the money, I agreed to help these people out. I started using professional tax software to help me speed up the process of filing tax documents. Without it, I’d be doing everything by hand.
Using the software, it’s easy just to feed in the information from the forms that have been provided for me by the people, and everything get’s put into the right place and the calculations are made. I can even scan the documents with my scanner and extract the information that way. The only reason I don’t use the scanning method is because my scanner is one of those one page scanners that are found on all in one printers. Scanning one page takes nearly a minute, so scanning all of the pages given to me would be a terrible experience. If I had a scanner that allows me to feed in documents, then I would be able to do that without wasting time.
After doing taxes this season, I made $1,000, which I consider a pretty good profit. That was more than I got back from my tax refund. I decided to use that money to buy some parts for my computer. I needed some more RAM and a new graphics card that could run some of the games. I’m still debating if I should use some of the money to get that feeding scanner for the next tax season.
