You'll be filing and paying taxes for the next 70 years or more. Starting to learn HOW NOW, before your life and finances get complicated will benefit your greatly ($$$) in the future, IMO.
A 16 yr old, living with their parents, and getting back their $157 just don't seem right to me.
But TurboTax is the way to go.
