The Tax Code delenda est

The wife handed me the tax forms last night, all filled out, and wanted me to e-file them. So, I'm going through them line by line and I discover several things she missed - she assumed she should write down one number in one place instead of going through the worksheet and finding out that the number you get to write down on the main form is $2000 less... I ended up reading that whole ugly, boring booklet cover to cover, plus the TOS for the e-filing company.

So, basically, I ended up going to bed at 2:30 AM, p***ed off at the government.

Glad I found out they owe us $400 more than she thought.

Now for the state taxes.

Oh, crap! One of the errors in on the state form.
