Get Your Refund Now

With an accountant in the family, every day is tax time it seems, but it’s getting to be time to prepare for April 15. If you’re a do-it-yourselfer when it xcomes to taxes — or if you want to try it yourself — then look to Buy.com to get H.R Block’s Tax Cut or Turbo Tax. Prices start at $32 and you get free shipping, too. (The Basic TaxCut 2008 goes for $20 plus $5 shipping).

Either program is simple to install and use with tutorials that guide you every step of the way. Just click, click, click your way to a refund. Start by clicking the picture at right, and let them know Skylarking sent you, or tell ’em a little birdie told you.  (I’ve been waiting 6 months to say that. I know, I know, sad, isn’t it.)

Now all I need to do is get started… last week.
