No Time to Cook, or do anything else...

Intaxication:  Euphoria at getting a refund from the IRS, which lasts until you realize it was your money to start with. 
 ~Author unknown, from a Washington Post word contest
It's income tax time again, Americans:  time to gather up those receipts, get out those tax forms, sharpen up that pencil, and stab yourself in the aorta.  ~Dave Barry




 The nation should have a tax system that looks like someone designed it on purpose.  ~William Simon


Question:  " I understand that Congress is considering a so-called 'flat' tax system.  How would this work?"  Answer:  "If Congress were to pass a 'flat' tax, you'd simply pay a fixed percentage of your income, and you wouldn't have to fill out any complicated forms, and there would be no loopholes for politically connected groups, and normal people would actually understand the tax laws, and giant talking broccoli stalks would come around and mow your lawn for free, because Congress is NOT going to pass a flat tax, you pathetic fool."  ~Dave Barry

I just did taxes yesterday. Funny, the first time I did taxes (in Jan. of 2002) I had two pieces of paper to deal with and each year that number has seemed to double. So, this year...oh my...oh my...I hope we reach a point where things level off. Good luck to you!
