Evening Rant

Man I hate doing taxes. Is it just me, or are US taxes even more complicated that Canadian taxes? Ok, some of that was because of Jean’s inheritance (and we haven’t got it all because her house didn’t sell until the 2006 tax year). I’ve spent almost my entire “day off” on this crap. And I can’t file because I don’t have the 1098 for the mortgage on the old house.

And what’s the deal with TurboTax charging $40 for the software, and then another $30 to e-file? I used to use TaxAct and it was something like $15 total. And the rebate for people who’ve bought TurboTax and Quicken recently doesn’t apply to me because I bought Quicken from the Quicken web site so I don’t have a UPC for it.
