Is it better to use a tax professional; or just stick with the software?
Despite what politicians promised; I'm probably going to owe money this tax season because I'm a middle class employee who got a raise, and forgot to adjust my witholdings. I was on such a role of breaking even too.
With that being said; each online service I've used so far has me owing a couple hundred to the feds. Would it be worth it to see a real tax professional (H&R Block, etc) to see if they can work some magic and get me a refund? Or are their ads just a bunch of crap?
