Hilo, Hawaii (PressExposure) February 11, 2009 -- Every year, millions of Americans make the switch to filing taxes online to make the process quicker and more convenient.
But that change can be daunting and lead to frustration unless the right site used, which is why www.fileyourtaxesnow.com is the perfect choice for those who have previously used other online filing sites, and especially for those are using the Internet for the first time to file their taxes.
What's even more promising is that the site can not only help taxpayers get a larger refund, they can also file their returns free and only pay once they have completed their return. With a low fee of only $9.95 for the basic package and $29.95 for the premium, both of which can be deducted from their return (in addition to $14.95 with each package for filing state returns), those considering a switch to filing taxes online have even more reason not to put off using an online service like www.fileyourtaxes.com as they prepare to complete their returns for 2009 and beyond.
Another advantage is that, unlike most sites, www.fileyourtaxes.com requires no use of any credit card, which often prevents taxpayers from using an online service.
"We encourage taxpayers to compare the refund that they will get with us against any of the other services out there," said Ron Chamberlain, founder of www.fileyourtaxesnow.com.
"Most users can expect to get a sizeble return and pay lower fees versus using another online service. And with today's economy, a refund is going to help struggling families."
Chamberlain stresses that the price for filing taxes never exceeds the $29.95 fee for the premium package, regardless of how many forms are needed to file a return. And he promises that the services available through www.fileyourtaxesnow.com cannot be topped by any other tax filing site.
"Our product is the tax return itself," Chamberlain said. "The site features easy to use fill in the blanks online tax preparation software with all the updated tax codes needed for the current tax season."
Even more convenient is that Chamberlain said that once taxpayers have used the service, they can pull up returns filed through www.fileyourtaxesnow.com from the previous year and pre-fill information and edit it where needed.
"We've simplified the process by asking easy to understand questions so taxpayers don't have to worry about complex tax terminologies that only the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) understands," Chamberlain said.
Confidentially is yet another consideration that those who have previously wavered about using an online site no longer have to worry about. "Security and privacy is very important to insure that personal information is kept confidential, so we only ask for basic information such as a user's name and email address," he said. "The only people who get to see your financial information is the IRS."
Chamberlain also promises that the tax preparation help offered by www.fileyourtaxesnow.com is not only economical and convenient, but also accurate.
"Our system uses a service provider who has been in the tax business since 1913, which is the same year the Income Tax System was established," he said. "Our provider has been used by professional tax preparers and accountants for five generations here in the United States."
He said the site's staff not only includes programmers and web designer, but also other professionals with numerous years of accounting and tax preparation experience. Online support includes the ability to ask questions by email, which Chamberlain said will be answered within 24 hours.
