If a sudden bout of depression came on yesterday (April 1), it's probably because you have to do your taxes soon -- for real this time.
Part of what's sparking this depression is this fact: The IRS estimates that it takes over 20 hours for the average person to file their federal and state taxes. That's two full days of work, or, to put it more bluntly, your entire next weekend.
Or you could just hire someone to do it for you. Wallethub, a social network for personal finance decisions, ranked California as the 5th best place to get help with your taxes. The company analyzed all 50 states and the District of Columbia using seven metrics, including the amount of accountants in the state and their workload.
North Dakota was no. 1 and Mississippi, per usual, came in last.
