There is nothing like tax time to get you stressed out. And for many people during the recession, finances are already a source of endless stress and worry.
According to Barbara Mathews at H & R Block on North Hills Street in Meridian, now is the time to take care of your taxes.
Currently traffic is steady at the tax preparation service, but Mathews expects it will pick up soon.
For those who need a little help getting organized, Mathews offers this suggestion.
"One of the best things to do is get out last year's tax return and use that as your guide, especially if it is itemized," said Mathews. "On last year's return, taking your deductions, use it as your guide and just go by it step by step and gather yourself that way."
Most tax preparation services suggest you book an appointment to get your taxes done, but right now, you may walk-in at many places, that is, until the traffic picks up.
