The taxes are done and I'm feeling wrung out. Usually I allocate an afternoon to sit down with a mug of tea, my organized forms and the latest version of TurboTax. Unfortunately this year didn't get off to the best start mainly because last year's hard drive crash claimed our 2006 data files. While this data loss wasn't a disaster, it sure slowed me down and forced me to reconstruct a lot of stuff that would have normally imported in 15 seconds from last year's files.
But I think it was my adventure into the crazy Employee Incentive Stock Options and Alternative Minimum Tax worksheets (new for me this year) that really did me in. It took me forever to enter this data, and re-enter it, delete and re-enter it, and second guess myself, delete and re-enter it and finally realize I'd done it right. Three mugs of tea later I had sorted it all out. Phew! I'm glad that is behind me.
Just one more chore before I can file - I've got to buy more ink for my printer so I can print out the tax forms.
