Why do I need a professional when there is software I can use and do it myself?

Filing your taxes can be a hassle, depending on your situation. If you’re just an individual filling out a W-2, you can likely handle that yourself. But when your return is more complex, you might find it’s worth hiring a professional, someone who can save you not only time and stress but also money. As a business owner, it’s important to understand your federal, state, and local tax requirements.
