Yes, we’re not even two weeks into 2022 yet. Yes, it’s already time to start thinking about filing your taxes. (Insert screed about the g*vernment’s absolute audacity to ask for money after the past year here.) But at least you’ll be done with 2021 for good as soon as your return is processed — that’s something, right?
If you need some assistance navigating the process, head over to Amazon to pick up some TurboTax tax prep software. As of Jan. 10, select packages were on sale for up to 39% off. Each one is designed to get you your biggest refund possible, with tools that reduce your chances of an audit, guide you through various life/company changes, and search for over 350 potential deductions and credits — even industry-specific ones for different businesses. Simply download it onto your preferred platform (there are separate versions for PC and Mac) and import your W-2s and investment information to get started.
You can take your pick from TurboTax Deluxe, Premier, Home & Business, or just plain Business, depending on your filing status. We’ve included a brief rundown of your options below.
