Turbo Tax? O ♥ G 2 kids; Pride, Louisiana 10723 posts

Basically, is it idiot proof??? Lol I know it's free online and if it's fairly easy to do then I think I want to try it this year. I worked all year full-time, I'm claiming one child out of my two, and I have childcare expenses to claim. That's pretty much it. I'm just scared to mess up and not get my full return :/ has that happened to anyone?? I don't know much about taxes AT ALL....anything having to do with math isn't my forte.

I thought about using turbo tax and then I did the refund estimator and it said I would only get $200 back, wtf. I did my taxes at HR Block and now I'm getting close to $1000 back so I don't really know whats up with that.

Pretty much...but turns out we found 1500 more dollars through HR block, because TurboTax didn't mention some credits. :/

It sounds like you're having too much taken out of your check.

Really? How so? It doesn't look like I get much taken out on my paycheck stubs. I mean idk a lot about this stuff though.
