Did you know that simple mistakes in computation make up a large portion of errors on tax returns? In fact, the IRS estimates that the average return contains literally dozens of miscalculations. These errors can cost you money, and delay the processing of your refund.
Failure to take advantage of deductions and credits can also increase the amount of taxes you pay, or reduce your refund. More than two million Americans overpay because they fail to itemize deductions, according to the GAO.
So what can you do to make sure your return is accurate and that it squeezes every cent out of deductions and credits available to you? One solution is to use filing software from the experts at H&R Block.
