Heh, so i just filed my taxes today. I'm rather proud. I was talking to some people who're in their 20's and its their first time doing them by themselves. My dad insisted that i do my own... so i did. At first i was really confused, but then it wasn't actually so bad. I did the telefile thing..... OMG! that whole touch tone process gets really old really fast!

"Question 3.... press 1 if the answer is yes, press 2 if no"
*BLEEP*
"you just pressed one, the answer is yes, please press 1 if this is true, press 2 if it is not."
*BLEEP*
"you have pressed 2, please refer back to question 3... if the answer is...."
"GUH, i meant 1..."
"...yes press 1, press 2 if no."
*BLEEP*
"you just pressed two, the answer is no, please press 1 if this is true, 2 if it is not."
"WHAT? I HIT ONE! CMON!"
*BLEEP*
"you have pressed 2, please refer back to question 3... if the answer is..."

*CLICK*

"stupid thing... i'll try again later..."

i think i had to call back like 3 times cause i kept getting so annoyed. It wasn't actually so bad though, once i got the knack of having to confirm every stupid thing i put in, it went quickly. Now i get a whole 50 bucks back! WAHOO.... heh... it almost doesn't seem worth it, heh.

So who else has been having fun with their taxes eh? You've got a week left for anyone who hasn't started!

Happy to say, i am a lazy bum, and will never get a job until i have to, which means no taxes, until i get a job. One of the frills of being a minor, no need for income. (but no beer or voting). hey, If you are amish, you don't have to pay income taxes, i'll be amish :tongue2: (that could just be pennsylvania)

Argh! Usually I do my taxes quite promptly, as soon as all the forms have arrived. But, just haven't managed to find the time yet this year (correlation to increased time on PF? Nah, that couldn't be it, could it?). My taxes are still pretty simple. Ha, I'm still too poor from all those years as a grad student and post-doc. When I can move and wrestle my money away from this mismanaged state retirement plan (yet another incentive to move somewhere else), I suspect things will get a bit more complex.

Gak :yuck: I had planned to do my taxes early this year and I haven't even started.

You have a ways to go to catch up to me on procrastination. I haven't filed a return since '79.
