If you are comfortable with forms and research, that is a good thing to have when considering taxes and researching the different costs that come with reporting any investments for taxes or other needs. There is no one-size fits all approach, and there are many software programs and websites that aim to help people with their investments and any required paperwork.
If the prospect of reading and filling out forms is a barrier for you to invest money, the first step is just to recognize that feeling. Working on learning about different financial products can be done at your own pace, just working on what type of learning style works for you and your schedule.
There are online videos, podcasts, websites and also books and seminars offline. The benefits of getting better at understanding paperwork, and also getting any assistance you can with questions, is to be able to make progress towards setting your financial goals and achieving them.
