Tax Deadline Looms!

March 30, 2010

Tax day is almost here, have you filed your taxes yet? If not, you can still get free H&R Block at Home software if you enter by the end of the day. Below are some tax tips from around the web on topics such as tax audits, tax deductions, hiring an accountant, amended tax returns, and others.

In other personal finance news, I also want to congratulate JD Roth from Get Rich Slowly for finishing his first book Your Money: The Missing Manual ! I haven’t read the book yet but I’ll do a write up on it once I have a chance.  I know JD poured his heart and soul into this one so I’m looking forward to seeing what he’s come up with.

Here are those tax tips and some other recent personal finance articles on the health care bill, investing, career, and credit:
