A shameless secret for you: When I first moved out of my parent’s home I had no idea how to “adult.” In fact, I had never done laundry in my life! I remember sitting on YouTube watching all the tutorials to help me figure out how not to ruin my entire laundry basket. Alas, about a decade later I promise I’m a pro!
You know what I always considered one of the biggest adulting wins? Anything and everything money. Once a year you have this handy dandy item on your todo list that (literally and legally) has to get done or else and there is no greater feeling than crossing it off your to-do list. What am I talking about? Filing your taxes!
I started filing my own taxes - meaning, mom and dad stepped aside! - about six years ago. The first time was rough. I tried to use the same accountants my parents had, but the process felt cold, confusing and manual. I then found TurboTax, which - at the time - felt almost like an “insider’s secret life hack” to filing your taxes. I admit, I was hesitant. But, after trying it for the first time and seeing how user-friendly it was I was hooked. Trust me, it’s years later and I’m still here.
Fast forward to last year, which was the first time I upgraded to TurboTax LIVE. It’s a tool that give filers the ability to connect with an expert CPA or EA through one-way video and you can click to connect with experts that walk you through anything and everything taxes. They empower you with total confidence and don’t rest until they are 100% confident you’ll get the most money back. After moving to a new state, I thought it would be great to have a tax expert on demand to help answer any questions related to this new tax situation. And trust me, if you can work a laundry machine, turn on the dishwasher and floss every day (ok, often), then this adulting task is even easier to achieve.
So, this #W2sDay I’m celebrating adulting. I’m incredibly lucky to have turned from loyal fan to now partner with TurboTax to bring some fun surprises your way. What you don’t want to miss? Heading to their YouTube channel tomorrow at 11am PT to watch me and some special friends do our best #adulting while sharing some fun tips and giveaway prizes!
