 Forum: Personal Finance   Topic: TurboTax or TaxCut?

I have experimented with both Taxcut and Turbotax. Both years I have done that, Turbotax has yielded a higher refund than Taxcut. I also find Taxcut a bit of a pain, since it doesn't have you enter data by form or by box of the forms. For example, I have a 1098-T for tuition, with values in box one ...

Both of my credit cards get paid online and I just pay them ON the actual due date. It's not considered late.

As long as the due date isn't Sunday or a holiday, right? Some companies may not ding you for that, but others might (and have for me.) I pay mine a day or two before it's due.

It feels like there just isn't that much left I can cut. I could cut charitable giving and reduce the number of trips back home to see my parents and friends, and I would if I lost my job or faced a major emergency, but I feel like doing either if I don't have to would just be depressing. There are...

I just received a past due notice for someone of the same name, but in a different state. I fear they might send this to a collection agency, come after me, and mar my credit. Should I do anything about it? More Details: It's for garbage collection in Yucca Valley, California. They somehow found my ...

Remember: potential employers may check your credit before hiring you to determine whether you are a potential security risk. Insurance companies may also check your credit before insuring you, or renewing your coverage.

Or is there something wrong with "the system"?

Maybe they get fed too well in prison? :)

There is no universally accepted definition of democracy, however most of them include the US system and I'm not sure how the semantics of the issue change the validity of my point. If you truly believe that the power of the US government is not fully derived from the people it governs then that's ...

Which programs were founded democratically? I thought we live in a Republic where our elected leaders create laws, not the people through a democratic process.

I voted for Obama. I think every citizen deserves to have access to the basic needs of life - food, clothing, shelter, healthcare. I don't mind paying taxes to help people less fortunate than me have these things. I cannot be swayed to think otherwise; this is fundamental to my belief system and th...

I believe a study was done recently that showed those concerned about national security favor McCain, while those concerned about their wallets favor Obama. So I suspect most on this site will vote for the O.

One thing I've learned about mattresses and furniture: they're marked up about 4x from the cost the store pays (our friends are in the mattress/furniture business.) We got a king mattress with a sticker price of $1899 (before tax, shipping, matress pad, etc) for $1000 delivered. We simply explained ...

how much do you think you SHOULD pay in taxes (all taxes combined....federal, state, fees, etc)? We should pay what it costs to run the government. The big problem is how the government spends our money. I think the federal government should only provide the services set forth in the constitution (...

If you live near or in an urban area, many museums have a free day every month. Here I think it's the first Thursday of the month.
