With TurboTax, he says, one does not have to know the IRS tax code, or use an accountant or personal assistant. The software will input basic information, but the most important thing - first timers need to be organized and keep their tax documents in one place.

The article says this is critical to saving money in taxes, and to prevent overpaying. Some of these are listed. Tax filers can deduct student loan interest, child and dependent care expenses, earned income, moving and travel expenses, and charitable contributions.
