So easy and convenient! I struggled for years preparing the 941 and 940 returns and getting to the post office in time. The fee to file with TaxBandits is less than the certified mail with a return receipt and the forms always come out very professional!
Why was I paying $165 to a CPA to type in Zero, email to me, I print it, Sign it, Copy it, load in an envelope, add an address & a stamp it, walk it to a mailbox to postmark on the last day of the month? TaxBandits preps, I e-sign, they e-file in seconds for $5 and all done with ease during the middle of the month. Holy Cow!
Excellent! Completing tax filings with TaxBandits is very easy, accurate, and fast. I’ve tried other tax filing services, and TaxBandits is by far the absolute best.
