Hey!

I have a question..

I am currently away at college and my parents offered to take care of my tax bill for me. I traded several times throughout the year and made upwards of 10 grand. My total tax bill came out to around $1200 after taking away commission etc.

Heres the problem: My parents accountant charged me $1300 dollars to create and fill out my forum!

I will be paying almost 15% of my income and $100 more than my tax bill just for the simple process of creating my 1040.

does that sound extremely excessive? and what can I do about it?

Lol H and R block is offering $29.99 services blah!
