What You'll Get
Picasso once said, "Nothing is certain but death and taxes," and now that most people are living forever due to residual radiation from the Icarus Device, it's really only taxes that are unavoidable. Today's Groupon lets you tackle a necessary evil without relying on your father or elementary math skills to fill out the requisite forms. For $50, you'll get $150 worth of tax services from Xpress Tax Solutions.
The brainchild of CPAs, Xpress was created for those who seek assistance but aren't ready to make a major investment and commitment with a CPA firm. Here, you can sift out the services you want like a build-your-own financial omelette. Pricing varies based on services, and options include forms 1040 and 540 ($150), additional W-2s ($15), social security income ($25), and earned income credit ($125). These prices reflect an average; actual fees may vary based on client-provided details, and other charges may apply for random forms, such as break-room cake income and inanimate dependents. Xpress Tax Solutions promises local experts, free federal and state electronic filing, and a friendly, family-like atmosphere.
Preparing your taxes on your own can result in costly errors, heightened headache frequency, and severe risk of "tax lung." If you claim your couch-dwelling bro as your dependent, only to find that he’s a miserly millionaire who has been sleeping over to claim you as a dependent, you could open yourself up to a nail-biting audit or nail-biting auditor who will then claim you as a dependent. You can buy up to two of these Groupons, but the first must be used by June 1.
