I get insurance through my job and I get my taxes done by a tax-accountant place (think H&R Block). So I am semi-adult~ish xD

I am 18, and I am utterly hopeless with these things.

I'm 23 - I have a house and a car, therefore I have both home and car insurance, and have been filing my own taxes for three years now. I get benefits and insurance (dental, visual, prescription, etc) through my work.

Seeing as taxes and insurance regulations and procedures vary from country to country, and even from province to province (or state to state), your best bet is to do research on local companies and make phone calls or appointments to make inquiries. It's important to ask a lot of questions, because properly filing taxes and having insurance tailored to your needs are both very important things. No one who is an expert in these areas will find anything wrong with you looking for information.

As far as insurance goes, it's a really good idea to shop around with different companies. Not only will it help you understand more on the topic, but it'll give you flexibility and choices - because I can almost guarantee you, many different offers will be on the table. (i.e. each year before my insurance renews, I shop around again - I found a company offering me a lower rate for my home-car insurance as a combo, so when I advised my current company, they made adjustments to my premium to keep me with them, but without me losing any of the coverage.)

Anyway, wishing you the best of luck!

hahaha my parents run their own business, so I grew up constantly being educated on this kind of stuff xD I was somewhat pushed into buying a house when I couldn't find any affordable rentals that would take my dog (lab/boxer mix). But I'm suuuper lucky in that my parents are very knowledgeable and helpful in these areas of life.

There is not a single person in the world that knows U.S. tax code. (26 U.S. Code § 1------26 U.S. Code § 9834). Code of Laws of the United States (U.S.C) title 26 deals with Taxation. It has 9834 sections. Divided into 11 subtitles. If you were to print it it would take 73954 pages. Best thing you can do is pay someone who specializes in tax code that you need and they will save you money in the end

I mean I pay all those things. I understand the concepts behind insurance and what my plans do and all that. Taxes... Well a lot of people don't understand that so I use TurboTax. Bills are bills, easy to understand if the thing you are paying is straight forward.

TAX!!!! OMG I need SOOOO MUCH help on this

Bill seems pretty easy, you can pay your bills online (at least for chase bank) and I can always ask my brother to teach me. I get free health insurance, I just need to update my information every year which can involve complicated questions. BUT TAX IS JUST /EXPLODES

I live in nyc, and the first time I had to fill that tax form on my own, I just put random numbers 0, 1, except????

ANYONE LIVING IN NYC WHO CAN HELP ME
