GRAND FORKS, ND (WDAZ)--The deadline for taxes is approaching.

Taxes are due on Tuesday, April 17.

With the deadline so close - most professionals are booked, we WDAZ asked a local accountant what is best: doing taxes yourself, or hiring a professional to do them for you.

A do it yourself package will cost you around 50 bucks, while a professional will cost well over one hundred dollars.

“If you are comfortable,. you are a numbers person, you like going through that type of thing and you have a really goods graps on your financial situation you are probably ok using one of the standard tax packages,” said Matt Komprood, of Fritz Nelson.
