Mister Cranky-pants

Death by Taxes

I wish there were plain-English summaries for the various instructions in IRS documents.

E.g.: "Remember those 'economic stimulus' checks we sent out last year? Yeah, those were done using last year's info. If you would've gotten more money if we used this year's info, you can do these three pages of worksheets to figure out how much extra we owe you. But otherwise, just ignore this section because it. Doesn't. Matter."
