Using online tax solutions has become a popular mode of filing taxes over the past few years. What are some of the benefits of filing your taxes online, as opposed to using downloadable tax software or employing the services of an accountant or tax consultant?

• Fast ‘N’ Easy - Online tax solutions afford customers fast and easy access to virtual tax forms, tax calculators, extensive tax knowledge centers and resources, as well as guided life questionnaires, all of the features and tools needed for tax compliance that can all be found in one website and at a click of a button.

Very affordable - you will find that many online tax solutions providers allow customers to e-file their taxes at very affordable rates. Subscription fees usually entail advanced features such as audit support.

Constant help and support - Customers will gain access to comprehensive knowledge bases, live chat, and 24/7 support, and will enjoy direct, expert help when filing their taxes online.

Yearly rollover and data import - not only will customers who use online tax solutions have all of their past tax info available to them online, they will be able to roll over their taxes from one year to the next, making e-filing your taxes that much more simple.

Accuracy guarantee - most online tax solutions providers offer their customers an accuracy guarantee, guaranteeing that customers will be compensated if there is a penalty incurring calculation error on the service’s part.
