Online Tax Preparation vs. Tax Preparation Software Download
Users can file electronically by using online and downloadable tax software. Both offer benefits, depending on your tax filing needs. By using online web-based tax preparation services, consumers can work on their taxes from any computer and automatically save their progress every step of the way. One benefit of using tax software is the sense of security - information will not be stored online and may make some feel safer to run software and store data on their own computer. Of those purchasing tax products from the Offers.com Tax Preparation Savings Center this season, 59 percent have purchased online tax programs, while only 41percent have purchased downloadable tax software.
