I do not know how the tax filing here in the USA is done. All I know is that every income has to be reported to the IRS (Internal Revenue Service). There are plenty of forms to fill-out. I do not think the rate the lady gave us is reasonable enough. We did not take it. Instead, we asked for a suggestion to where we can save more. The lady suggested to buy a software which helps do the taxes. It can save us money. So we went to a grocery store (which the lady recommended) and bought the software.
We had an appointment with the tax preparer this evening. We brought all our W-2’s, Form 1099, and other documents required for the tax filing preparation. Before anything else, my husband asked how much the service cost would be. The lady said it will range from $300-$325 dollars. The rate is so high than he was expected.
