I could really use this, it costs so much to have a professional do my taxes. I live in New York so therefore I am also a procrastinator. It's not unusual for my taxes to be filed on April 14.

I did not see a country bumpkin town in Arkansas on the list. I feel that I am a huge procrastinator when it comes to anything that requires me to give up any of my money.

Brittany Rebello said...

I could really use this! I just turned 18, so I have no idea how to file taxes, and I have a bunch of stocks and cds and things my grandfather bought me a long time ago. I have to file them or I get in trouble, but I have no idea how!

I could really use Turbo Tax Software. It would really come in handy especially since my family always seems to wait until the last minute to do taxes and it could easily help us discern whether or not we've made mistakes calculating how much we owe, etc. This is a great giveaway and I really hope I win. Thanks.
