If you do your taxes yourself, then it’s pretty likely you’ve already started thinking about filing in 2018. That’s why California Life shares how do-it-yourselfers can save money and avoid making mistakes with H&R Block’s Heather Watts.

“Most DIY taxpayers do their own taxes because they’re trying to save money and the good news is there are some great free options out there,” Watts explained.
For example, H&R Block More Zero allows about 6 out of 10 tax payers to do both their federal and state taxes completely free.
Watts also has tips on what you can be doing throughout the upcoming year so that when the time to do taxes does come, you have all of your documents ready and organized – right at your fingertips.
