Tax day is almost over in my time zone. 15 min to go as I write this. My taxes are done and have been for a bit. I started them back the first part of Feb. This last year we didn't make a great deal of money due to my not working and when I did find work, having it be of burger flipping variety.
Like I do every year, I used a tax program to do my taxes. Normally I get to efile, which makes things easier on me. This year, the former banker turned consultant, turned burger flipper, turned coal miner, who still itemizes because I always have; had to paper file. The reason being I exceed the limit of one of the forms, you can only have 2 but I had 3. So I had to paper file instead of the efile that I prefer. I guess I like efile because if your getting raped it may as well be convenient and quick for the victim.
I'd like a rational explanation for why it took 63 printed pages, for a guy who made next to nothing to do his taxes. Come on. It's not like I have a ton of complex sources of income or trust arrangements. IT TOOK 63 PAGES of tax forms! In years past I had a client whose annual income exceeded six figures a WEEK. I always received a copy of his tax return for my records. The longest one I ever remember him having was less than 40 pages.
