Sorry to have been away so long, MOM. I'm a late one this year, spending the day doing my taxes. Every step seems to involve research and finding a folder with a form, and then finding the corresponding IRS publication with one paragraph that pertains to my number. I'm on Schedule A right now and realize one company didn't send me the form they should have so I have to fill things out a little differently and report the points on refinancing the house myself. The really slow part was the state sales tax, but by going through my receipts and totalling them I'll get a lot more back, since the allowance is about 1/3 of the actual amount I spent this year (the burglary and replacement equipment was part of it).

But everyone else probably had their taxes in a long time ago so isn't interested in this saga so I'll stop now. (Now that I've finished printing up form 4684 and instructions for casualties and thefts. . . I shoulda started this earlier, but I've had so many things to do this spring and I was sick with the crud for a whole month. . . I haven't even had time to put in a GARDEN, Mom! Whaaa!)

Time for bed. . .
