Thread: F*n Taxes

  1. #1

    Default F*n Taxes

    I f'n e-filed my f'n taxes. Why the f* does it have to be so f*n complicated? W/ saved recipets, and 1099s and 1098s and short-term losses/gains at different rates from long-term gains. Employee stock diffrent from regular stock.

    F*n AMT, and I didn't even get the damn rebate. :steam:

    I refuse to let a pro. type crap into a spreadsheet that I can do, but I am way to disorganized to have this be a nice process.

    Graveyard material or common experience on April 15th?

    (sorry INTJMom for the cursing)

    Scrap the income tax. Problem solved! More than one problem, actually.

    I started using TaxCut years ago. Saved me hours and hours of time and LOTS of frustration.

    But you still need to keep all your paperwork handy over the year.

    And yes, your taxes seem a little more complicated due to the stocks and such.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    (hope no one kills me here): our taxes are automated. This year, aelan and i have been selected for "automatic deduction."

    Means our employers send them our income sheet, and they deduct the tax accordingly; with relief (hopefully) thrown in. No argument. The govt just takes the money.

    Oh, and capital gains are not taxable in my country.

    You gave me hyacinths first a year ago;
    They called me the hyacinth girl.
    Yet when we came back, late, from the Hyacinth garden,
    Your arms full, and your hair wet, I could not
    Speak, and my eyes failed, I was neither
    Living nor dead, and I knew nothing,
    Looking into the heart of light, the silence.

    --T.S Eliot, The Wasteland

    There's quite a few countries without capital gains tax. My guess here is on Hong Kong

    I totally agree with the entire OP, except for the censoring. I'd have said the real words.
