Should we use a tax preparation professional or an online tax filing program?

My spouse and I are filing our taxes for 2017 and we do not have complex taxes. However, they do involve a Form 1099-MISC and a Form 1095-A. We own a home. Should we use a tax preparation professional or an online tax filing program?

While everyone's situation poses their own unique complications, tax preparation software has become very intuitive over the years.  Even the more complex scenarios can be handled through most leading applications.  If what you've mentioned is the extent of your tax complications (and you are comfortable with a computer), I would think you would be perfectly fine utilizing an online tax filing program.  Programs such as TurboTax will guide you through every detail of your return, answering any question you may have as you go.  I believe you'll likely be pleasantly surprised with the experience.

Best of luck!
