A few tips for filing taxes yourself!

Before starting, make sure you have all of your documents with you. It sounds pretty obvious, but some people like to get a head start before having everything which can cause a huge headache in the end.

Look everything over twice before filing. Make sure all of your numbers and information are entered correctly. The easiest of things, like your social or phone number, are often screwed up because filing can become overwhelming.

Lastly, use your resources! If you’re unsure about something, don’t just take a guess. Look up your questions are call someone who may know.

Thinking about filing taxes on your own but feeling unsure? Here’s a couple perk of filing yourself.

1. It’s easy. Check the tax software available online like TurboTax or TaxACT! They are simple, fill in the blank and they will walk you through the whole process and explain why your tax refund will readjust throughout.

2. You will save money. Depending on how simple your return may be, you should be able to file for free. (or almost free!) Even if you will have to pay, it will most likely be significantly cheaper than having an accountant do them for you.

3. You will learn and be more aware about your finances. This is always a plus. You should always have a clear picture of what is going on with your finances.

Place a value on money. If you're planning on making a big purchase in the near future and have planned out how many hours you may need to work to make the purchase, make sure you have every aspect planned out. Don't forget to account for the taxes taken out of your paycheck and keep in mind that you have other competing demands for your money. (Like rent, car payment, phone bill, etc.) It's nice to have new things, but make your decisions wisely as it may be costing you the things that really matter.

Are you finding that you're having trouble figuring out where all your money keeps going? It might be time to reevaluate your spending habits... Take a look at your most recent transactions. Did you really NEED the things you spent your money on? Set yourself up with a budget and hold yourself accountable. Soon, your account won't look so empty and you'll start to feel a whole lot better.

Tips for boosting up a poor credit score:
1. Pay your bills on time
2. Pay off any debt ASAP
3. Look at your credit report often to monitor it for mistakes
4. Set up automatic payments, payment reminders or both
5. If you have credit cards you’re not sure how to pay off, do not use them!

And Remember… the higher the credit score, the more it will drop when you miss a payment
