Well you can call the 800-829-1040 line and ask them for help but don't be surprised if you get the wrong answers.  I recently had one rep tell me to go to H.R. Block if I needed help with doing my taxes.  I managed to get it all done without the help of anyone but myself, thank goodness.  This can be a very stressful time for some of us.  I don't itemize so I don't have to fool with all that aggravation of adding up all the medical and see if it is over a percentage of total income before it can be deducted.  Just to make sure you know "I HATE doing taxes" too!!

My paper work has been spread on my dining room table and floor for 4 weeks...I vow to complete it Sunday, including copies and put it in the envelope to go to the accountant. My husband is self employed; a part time college professor and military retiree...lots of itty bitty details of expenses...mind numbing annually and further aggravated by the lymphedema Michelin man arm wrap this year during tax time...I breath a huge sigh when it is in the mail and again when I here the final amount owed, if not bad, or credit to 1st quarter taxes! I feel your pain.

I hate doing taxes too!!  No hope for me getting it done by Sunday.  I have some ETFs, and they don't have to finalize their statements until 60 days after the end of their fiscal year, so that's often at least 60 days after Jan 30 - I haven't gotten those statements yet, so I'm trying to calculate them.  Itemization is the pits, and I have an FSA (health care spending account), so I'll have to get that together too.  I'll probably have to file an extension for my federal and state, but I can't for my FSA.  I'd better give that more priority.

Thanks for this thread so I can remember to do that because I can't get an extension for my FSA.

FSA is soooo confusing, figuring out what was refunded and what was not.

Taxes suck almost a much as BC, ok, maybe not that bad.  I love the idea of treats, maybe try that tomorrow.  I told my DH we are sure to be audited next year as I will have a drastic change of income with being out of work for months.  Send an auditor now, I am bald and have steriod rage.

HA HA!

Christine...I have been unemployed several times....that alone has not been enough for an audit.

(I was out for 8 months of last year...my husband was out of work for 2 months.)

However there are work-related expense I can not deduct while I am not working, which annoys me.

I can not find all of my prescriptions which is irritating me a lot!

Cookiegal,

Love that name, I am a cupcake fan myself.  I got my pharmacy (Walgreens) to print out a list of all my pharmacy expenses for the year.  Maybe you can get your pharmacy to do this for you.  Never had many Rxs before all this BC crap.
