    Happy Tax Day (to those in the US anyway)...
    Do you do your own taxes or do you pay to have them done for you?

    My DH is an accountant with a specialty in tax. Enough said

    My bachelors degree is in accounting. As a stay at home mom, doing our taxes is one of the few times I get to break out my skills and actually use them!

    Usually my DH does ours with Turbo Tax or some at home program like that. However, this year I'm having someone do them b/c my nanny from last year brought me some forms to fill out when she was trying to file her taxes. It wasn't even something that had crossed my mind but turns out I am, in the eyes of the IRS, an employer. Apparently I should have been filing quarterlies and junk like that so went to a CPA in the same office complex as my office and they are handling it all for me.

    I was a nanny for a few years. When I did that to her she wasn't exactly thrilled with me!

    My DH is self employed and our taxes are very complicated, so we take ours to a CPA.

    I have always done them and did them this year. Next year, I will have someone else do them becuase I think I am missing out on some deductions we could be taking.

    Our tax day isn't for a couple weeks, but hubby and have done ours already. We both use Turbo Tax online too. So easy and cheap. I got my refund today and it went straight onto my credit card debt to pay for our trip. w00t!

    Sorry your employer was rude about it. I just honestly didn't think about it. She earned almost 6 grand last year so understandably it should not be "under the table" and if I don't file my taxes correctly and report it she doesn't have the info she needs to file hers. So once it came to my attention I understood the need to get it straightened out but it is a bit of pain. Not her fault, taxes just tend to be that way
