To be fair, doing taxes by yourself isn't the the
most complicated thing in the world. I used to just be able to give my parent my tax forums and they would bring it to their accountant, but ever since I started to live on my own I found its easier to just use one of those online tax-preparation websites that will hold your hand & walk you through the entire process. If you're a wiz with a simple tax situation, where you're really only working one job, you can simply follow the website prompts and put in your numbers from your annual tax form from the job. It's a learning process for sure, but it's as simple as that, the website will double check everything for you to make sure you're getting the maximum amount of credits & deductions for your situation and then efile it to the government. There's a bunch of different websites that specialize in this, and if you don't earn a lot, you could even qualify for free tax preparation.
