Annual Agony Or The Curse Of The Return

Rating: 5.0
All yesterday and half the night
I struggled with a yearly plight

Deciphering instructions
And figuring deductions
While fretting that the tax laws aren't fair.
The adding, multiplying,

Do we call you Grace or Diane? I am delighted in finding an accomplished poet out of the blue. And I find you entertaining as well My spies have let me down. I should have been informed sooner. Please give us more (I have read your first four submissions all of which I find admirable.) Unable to find a biography. Please give us the basics. I suspect a pseudonym... you are no amateur

I have used Turbo-Tax the last few years (at least for Federal) . You still have to be able to answer the questions, and pay some money, but at least you know you are getting the changes in the law and not making mathematical errors.

I also use Turbo Tax, both for Federal and for State. I used to buy the software at Sam's Club or Costco, but while I was in Brazil I couldn't do that (had to buy it online) so when I got back I just kept doing it that way.
